While San Francisco has no shortage of bands enmeshed in '60s pop in one form or another, the Fresh and Onlys continue to push it in sparkly new directions. That's to say the band's latest LP, Long Slow Dance, is a wonderfully lush earworm that has more in common with the Cure than, say, the Seeds. The record is unabashedly sweet and sentimental, brought home by Tim Cohen's echoed vocals and guitars that are less fuzzy and more reverb-drenched than ever. Don't let the slickness of the recording frighten you—you can't fault a band that wants to move out of their parents' garage and take a swan dive into the Paisley Underground. MARK LORE
