New Fresh and Only's & Ducktails

We caught the Fresh and Only's during our little 4th of July excursion to the Woodsist/Captured Tracks festival. We were a little hazy come the late afternoon hours (blame 99 cent 24 oz Coors and July sun), but the Fresh and Only's were a standout alongside the clear favorite Real Estate. The San Fran based group have been fairly prolific in their output, and will now drop Grey Eyed Girls on September 15th via Woodsist (of course). The band is bringing their lo-fi brand of 80s synth/garage/classic rock to the road, touring with Stephen Malkmus (!) and usual suspects Thee Oh Sees amongst others. Tour dates after the jump.

in other Real Estate related matters...

Stereogum premiered a new track from Ducktails... it's a little downtrodden and predictably ramshackle - a simple bass guitar melody drives the track which has a lovely late afternoon relaxing nature to it. Enjoy peoples.
