Premiere: The Fresh And Onlys, “Invisible Forces” MP3

At the recent Woodsist/Captured Tracks festival in Bushwick, San Francisco's The Fresh And Onlys stood out both onstage and off, looking like a nomadic weed tribe with dark secrets and sounding like wild evangelicals with deep musical gifts. Of course, then lead singer/brokenhanded keyboard player Tim Cohen cracked a bunch of funny jokes and the illusion of black magic was shattered. What a jerk. The music was awesome though, most memorably this song, "Invisible," from upcoming LP Grey-Eyed Girls, out September 15th on Woodsist. Check the album's tracklist after the jump along with a bunch of tour dates with Malkmus, The Oh Sees and more.
