I go back and forth on my love of Fresh & Onlys. I’ll listen to certain tracks of every album and listen to them on repeat, until the needle is smoking, until my roomies complain. But as a whole sound -Tim Cohen’s deep vibrato, the tendency towards a sound that borders on pop – it often times just doesn’t click. Their newest 7″, in all its singular glory, hits me right in the soft spot though, with The Fresh & Onlys kicking it off with a sultry guitar riff before thundering in to a break-neck jam with Cohen’s powerful yoller leading the charge. Who knows what I’ll think of the next one, but for now, my Fresh & Onlys needs are sated.
“I Would Not Know The Devil” is the a-side of the band’s 7″ on SEXBEAT Records
