Amoeba Review

Daniel Tures, Hollywood 01/29/2013

This great SF jangle-pop band took their time writing and recording this record, and the results are stunning. A wondrous set of bittersweet pop with indelible choruses and intriguing emotions, a little bit Smiths, a little bit Go-Betweens, a little bit Troggs. Their best yet, one of the year's best too. They can also be heard backing psych-folk legend Rodriguez on the road.

Shockingly good. That’s the only way I can describe the new album from The Fresh & Onlys. They were are always good, but Long Slow Dance takes the S.F. garage rockers to epic heights, with a newfound clarity to their vocals and straightforwardness of songwriting. “Yes or No” is divine romantic guitar pop, stringing a beautiful upward melody along a chugging backbeat that develops into a swooning chorus. The title track is the kind of campfire-friendly indie pop that bests the Shins at their game. “Presence of Mind” swirls around a picturesque college-rock backdrop but loops in perfect surf-rock riffs and another irresistible chorus. Every song seems to have some “how can that be new” moment, whether it’s a memorable line like “Dream girls don’t know what they’re doing/They go around doing anything they want,” or some elegant guitar riff, or laying out yet another perfect guitar ballad with “Executioner’s Song.” You just don’t want Long Slow Dance to end.
