Long Slow Dance
, The Fresh & Onlys’ fourth highly anticipated album, brings a great new shapeshifting sound. This thing’s a breakthrough; the band are joyous, confident–almost dangerous. It’s due in North America on Sept. 4 on Mexican Summer.

“LSD” is a mature, anthemic and-in subtle ways-pretty weird album teaming with Morricone-esque flourishes and seemingly disparate genre elements. “We spent more time recording this than we had on records in the past,” bassist and co-founder Shayde Sartin says.

“Phil Manley certainly had a good influence on us in the studio; he’s very meticulous with the kind of sound he’s trying to get for each song, and the record definitely has its own vibe,” he says.

 

Recorded on the same reel-to-reel that the influential Warren Zevon did “Werewolves of London,” these instantly compelling songs demand multiple listens. It’s both the San Francisco act’s most cohesive work to date and a sprawling selection of stoner-anthems.

About Lost in Reviews

Named after the 2003 film Lost in Translation, Lost in Reviews set out to embody the philosophy of this film in a website. Discouraged with the lack of passion in modern day criticism, founders Angela Davis and Ryan Davis created the entertainment review site in 2009. The idea being that, this would be the go-to place for people to find that something that was missing in their life through film or music.

Lost in Reviews is based in Kansas City, Dallas and Chicago. The site covers all aspects of entertainment, but tries to focus more on the easily over-looked. Lost in Reviews is the home to the starving filmmaker and indie bands everywhere. If you’re looking for a voice or trying to share in a vision, then Lost in Reviews just may be the place to help you get there. As the tag line for Lost in Translation says: “Everyone wants to be found.” So find yourself Lost in Reviews.
