    On their latest EP, Secret Walls, the Fresh & Onlys further mine that sock-hopping sound, albeit with fewer alterations and a looser, more jammy approach.

    At 18 minutes, the whole EP floats away just as quickly. But at the rate these guys work, we won't have to wait long for more great songs.

    On Secret Walls, the Fresh & Onlys prove that a band's ability to record a smattering of gems isn't entirely bound by the heady speed in which they record them. Quantity and quality need not be mutually exclusive here.
