Your Daily Lick: The Fresh & Onlys

The Fresh & Onlys (Castle Face Records)

Coming from San Francisco's Castle Face Records (home to Ty Segall, John Dwyer, and more), it's gotta be gritty. Thus the few examples of aimless garage rock, though evocative, don't pack much punch. The real moments of bliss on this debut, and there are many, skew toward tuneful, demented pop, recalling Lou Reed, Roky Erickson, and retro contemporaries like Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti.

At Thee Parkside (1600 17th St., San Francisco) on May 23. 9 p.m., $8
