B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 15 SEPT. 2012

Formed in 2004, originating as a collaboration between leader Tim Cohen (of Black Fiction) and bassist Shayde Sartin, The Fresh & Onlys rose in the SF Bay Area garage-pop scene with folks like John Dwyer (of Thee Oh Sees) and the like. Their fourth full-length, first on Mexican Summer, Long Slow Dance combines their garage roots with '80s British eccentric pop, culling band influences like Felt, The Smiths and The Jazz Butcher. Long Slow Dance isn't mere retro; it's an unabashed contemporary pop gem that fits as a perfect book end to summer.
