Video: The Fresh & Onlys // “Presence of Mind”.
San Francisco’s best, the Fresh & Onlys, just keep getting better.  Last month, I had the opportunity to see them play a bunch of new material at Vacation for Lee Raymore’s Silent Music exhibit.  I couldn’t deny the thoughtfulness behind the new sounds. Here is their video for “Presence of Mind” from their upcoming LP, directed by Dawn Carol Garcia.  The Onlys just announced a full North American tour in support of the album, Long Slow Dance, due Sept. 4th on Mexican Summer.  Check out a sneak peek of a forthcoming documentary on the making of the album here.  Also the whole album is streaming now via the Hype Machine.

Video: Fresh & Onlys // Waterfall (live at SXSW). From SailorJerry

I once told Shayde Sartin, bassist of the Fresh & Onlys that my love for the Onlys not only stemmed from my appreciation for their song writing, but also their dedication. “Respect your elders,” I said. They’re the Godfathers of the current wave of San Francisco garage rock. There’s no doubt about that.

Shayde Sartin, of San Francisco’s The Fresh  and Onlys recently assembled a mix of songs for public consumption  (Thanks dude!). Hands down, the F&Os are one of the city’s best  bands right now, and it might have something to do with the fact that  they’ve been doing rad shit for a long time, and maybe they have some  rad tastes. 
“Here’s a quick mix of songs I’ve been wrestling with in my  sleep. Feel free to do the same. I have rants that go with each one. ” -  Shayde Sartin (from the F&Os blog)

1- “They Don’t Know” - Kirsty MacColl 2- “When The Rain Comes Down” - Chris D. & The Divine Horsemen 3- “Roc Alpin” - Catherine Ribeiro + ALPS 4- “Broken English” - Marianne Faithful 5- “Bedsit Girl” - Chris Spedding 6- “Strange Delight” - Opal 7- “Just Like Arcadia” - Psychick TV 8- “Triha De Sumé” - Lula Cortes E Ze Ramalho 9- “Boats and Trains” - Pulp 10- “Riboflavin-Flavored, Non-Carbonated, Polyunsaturated Blood” - 45 Grave 11- “Lisa’s Party” -  The Legendary Pink Dots 12. “Bill Bailey” - The Gun Club 13. “Ordinary Bummer” - Iggy Pop 14. “Dressing Up” - The Cure 15. “My Little Baby” - T.Rex
