Notable Locals: The Fresh & Onlys

Posted By on Tue, Sep 2, 2008 at 10:12 AM

Black Fiction's Tim Cohen seems to keep pretty busy these days, band-wise, but one of his projects in particular recently caught my ear. The Fresh & Onlys is Cohen's band with Shayde Sartin, Raphi Gottesman, Wymond Miles, Heidi Alexander, and Grace Cooper, and the sound is deceptively sweet when you listen to the lyrics about shady friends, nuclear disasters, and demons in your head. Taking influence from acts ranging from 13th Floor Elevators to Tall Dwarfs and Swell Maps, the band's lo-fi, lysergic sound is haunting, crossing borders between folk, garage, and slanted pop. Check out their MySpace offerings here. —Jennifer Maerz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
