The Fresh & Onlys "Presence of Mind" (2012)
San Francisco indie outfit The Fresh & Onlys today premiere the Dawn Carol Garcia directed, zombie themed, music video for "Presence of Mind" (the audio of the song was posted here by Billy Gil a few weeks ago) taken from the band's new album Long Slow Dance which is scheduled for release by Mexican Summer next Tuesday, Sept. 4th. In support of the new album by the band that features Amoeba SF's own Tim Cohen, who founded the group back in 2004, will kick off a North American tour that begins next Wednesday (Sept 5th) in Santa Ana and will include dates at The Echo in LA on Sept 7th and at The Independent in San Francisco on Sept 8th.
Also on the tour will be Terry Malts, Grass Widow and Quilt. The new album has the distinction, according to the band, of been recorded on the same reel-to-reel that Warren Zevon recorded "Werewolves of London." There is a documentary on the making of the album in the works which you can get a sneak peek below. And for a preview of the album you can pick up releases from the Fresh & Onlys back-catalog here + stream a preview copy here c/o Hype Machine Fresh & Onlys tour details.
