Never ones to let you go too long without a new release, today S.F. garage-psych wizards the Fresh & Onlys announced a new EP, Secret Walls, which is out on the Sacred Bones label April 26. This follows swiftly behind Play It Strange, the band's deservedly acclaimed full-length from last year -- the best album yet from one of the city's best local bands. From the sound of new song "Do You Believe in Destiny," which you can stream after the jump, the Fresh & Onlys have taken everything great they did on Play It Strange and done it even more.

First, the vocals: Tim Cohen has always seemed reticent to really sing rather than chatter, talk or mumble. But he began opening up vocally on Play It Strange, and does so even more here -- it's startling in the opening seconds of the song. The reverbed guitars that made songs like "Waterfall" so unforgettable is also back. All in all, this is a short, beautiful tease of the Fresh & Onlys' lush new direction.

  • 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.'"
