Long Slow Dance
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Mexican Summer
After releasing their raw and ragged 2010 debut, The Fresh & Onlys kept busy, turning out side projects and EPs and touring like crazy. Two years later, that messy gush of creative energy that made their debut so charming is more controlled. On Long Slow Dance, well-built '60s pop throwbacks like "Dream Girls" and "Yes or No" seem a bit more postured and polished than anything they've done before. The arrangements and accoutrements (a horn on "The Executioner's Song," a bouncing counter melody on "Presence of Mind") are dually sophisticated as well, and help make the album's charms linger.
