The Fresh & Onlys
On the heels of several singles, EPs and solo albums; and with two stellar full lengths (+ a tape) out in 2009, it doesn't seem like Cohen and the boys could have much left in them. It seems, however, that their inspiration matches their never-ending drive and with Play It Strange the band finally enters a proper studio to lay their potent jangle-ridden garage to tape. Tim Green lends the band a bit of sheen without distracting from the raw energy that made them great. As with their recent Woodsist single, they've repurposed a few songs from the easily missed Bomb Wombs cassette and reworked them into tightly wound studio creations and mixed them in amongst the new offerings. As nomadic as ever, Cohen and co. bounce to In The Red for this album, which seems like as perfect a fit as any of the past labels they've tried on.
