Album Notes
Elements of blues, jazz trip-hop and psychedelia come into play on Sexfresh's debut release. The Bay Area quintet composes dark, often trance-inducing arrangements littered with accordion, banjo and upright bass. What stands out most, however, is Emily Zuzik's deep soulful alto that croons, wails and whispers with understated power. On the rocked out "Bitterroot" and their tripped-out cover of the blues classic (sic) "Baby Please Don't Go," Zuzik's vocal presence elevates to an unabashed growl. "Two Dimes in One Shoe" has the lazy character of Mazzy Star, while other tracks resemble a less-processed Portishead.

-- Top DIY Pick, Performing Songwriter Magazine

The strength of this San Francisco-based quintet is its darkly-nuanced arrangements. By turning some modern tricks on conventional blues and jazz, they get good mileage out of the minimalist input.

--Austin Chronicle: "South by Southwest Picks and Sleepers"


to write a review


Two singer/songwriters one band and a great sound
A band that is very listenable and occasionally trance-inducing. A solid album from top to bottom that fixes a great mixture of upbeat and down tempo, male and female voices. The description of the sounds in the blurb is apropos, so I won't go any farther, just pick it up if it sounds like your thing. Oh, if the name didn't tip you off, it's sexy too.
