The Fresh & Onlys, formed in San Francisco by Shayde Sartin ( Skygreen Leopards' bassist) and Tim Cohen, played messy Sixties-style garage-rock on Grey-Eyed Girls (Woodsist, 2009) and Fresh & Onlys (Castle Face, 2009), moving towards a cleaner sound on Play It Strange (In The Red, 2010), that includes the eight-minute Tropical Island Suite and the galopping twangy Waterfall. Their super-prolific output was uneven, to say the least (most), with the six-song EP Play August In My Mind (Captured Tracks, 2010) probably being the best introduction and the single Second One To Know and the title-track from the EP Secret Walls (Sacred Bones, 2011) being perhaps the catchiest songs they recorded.

Tim Cohen was also active as Amocoma (black metal) and released the solo album Two Sides of Tim Cohen (Secret Seven, 2009).

Fresh & Onlys' Tim Cohen and Ray's Vast Basement's Jon Bernson formed the Window Twins that debuted I'm This Tall City (Broken Twilight, 2009).

Tim Cohen launched his solo career as a masterful and old-fashioned popsmith on Laugh Tracks (Captured Tracks, 2010), with Oh Oh Oh. Magic Trick (Captured Tracks, 2011) debuted Cohen's new band, still in the same power-pop vein, with a corollary in the EP Bad Blood (Captured Tracks, 2011), with Rock Bottom and Delicate Creatures. Magic Trick became a real band for Glad Birth Of Love (Empty Cellar, 2011), that has little in common with its predecessor, being structured in four lengthy loose post-folk songs a` la Talk Talk.
