Never ones to let you go too long without a new release, today S.F. garage-psych wizards the Fresh & Onlys announced a new EP, Secret Walls, which is out on the Sacred Bones label April 26. This follows swiftly behind Play It Strange, the band's deservedly acclaimed full-length from last year -- the best album yet from one of the city's best local bands. From the sound of new song "Do You Believe in Destiny," which you can stream after the jump, the Fresh & Onlys have taken everything great they did on Play It Strange and done it even more.

First, the vocals: Tim Cohen has always seemed reticent to really sing rather than chatter, talk or mumble. But he began opening up vocally on Play It Strange, and does so even more here -- it's startling in the opening seconds of the song. The reverbed guitars that made songs like "Waterfall" so unforgettable is also back. All in all, this is a short, beautiful tease of the Fresh & Onlys' lush new direction.
