Editorial Reviews

While Kelley Stoltz's nigh-religious reverence for all things Beatles, Beach Boys and Kinks has been at the fore on recent albums Below the Branches and Circular Sounds, his new album, To Dreamers, blends a bit more post-punk abandon into its layered everyman pop. Tasteful horn adornments blow against tom-tom beats and 12-string guitars meet reverbed mellotrons, under Stoltz's warm vocals. Kelley, now a veritable godfather to the burgeoning San Francisco under/over-ground (folks like Thee Oh Sees, Sonny & the Sunsets, The Fresh & Onlys), has blazed a path since the late 90s as a home-recording guru and multi-instrumentalist. No slouch on the live front, he was asked to open the Raconteurs first US tour in 2006, toured the USA and Europe with the Dirtbombs in 2008, and through a twist of volcano ash-cloud karma, was the support act to childhood heroes Echo and the Bunnymen, in 2010. His songs have been used for international ad campaigns for Volvo and Marriott Hotels, as well as in television and movies. I would wager that the entire reason behind music itself is to dream. From the young kid strumming a tennis racket along with the Ramones, to the box seats at the opera, the goal is the same. What music does and should do is allow us to lose ourselves and be transported, to find the mystical land where milk and honey meets Xanadu. See where you go with this new Kelley Stoltz record an album of tunes oddly familiar and yet surprising, like a dream itself.

Why Kelley isn't a better known name is beyond me. I've loved everything he's ever put out and his combination of vintage Beach Boys/Kinks/Beatles/etc. sounds better every time. Like his last few long players, this one sounds a little less lo-fi and more professional. Nice bonus: Having Pete Miller (aka Big Boy Pete)play on Stolz's cover of Miller's legendary freakbeat classic "Baby, I got news for you".

I'm just a few days back from a Bunnymen concert where Kelley was the opening act. I had no idea who he was and was very impressed with his set. I enjoyed the live versions over the studio recordings since there was no vocal distortion which made it easier to really hear the perfomance. He dedicated the song "Fire Escape" to his dad (who was in the audience) and my friends and I said that was the kind of song that would get you a speeding ticket while listening to it in the car. He also played a song called "Caroline" which I didn't see on any other albums (unless I overlooked it), but it was very catchy and the lyrics were fun. By chance I met him after the show as he was roaming around the building and told him he had just made three new fans. I'm happy to say he was very down to earth, friendly and laid back and spent a good 15 minutes talking to me. I could kick myself for not purchasing the cd at the gig and having him sign it right then and there. And as my title reads, I'm a new fan and will be catching up on all things Kelley that I've missed thus far.

Why Kelley Stoltz has yet to ascend to his destiny as treasured retro-pop hero is anyone's guess... sure, songs from 2006's 'Below The Branches' got plucked for use in hotel commercials and such, but ultimately seems absent from most listeners' personal indie pop canon. Admittedly, I found Stoltz's previous album (Circular Sounds) to be flat at worst and a grower at best (still recommended, though!).

'To Dreamers', though, sees Kelley return to form with a sizable collection of eminently jaunty gems of songs. 'Gem' may be a particularly apt metaphor, as songs like 'Pinecone', 'Ventriloquist', and 'Love Let Me In Again' all sound like something dug up from the soil and shined to perfection. While a few tracks here don't quite hit the mark with their hooks ('Keeping the Flame', 'Fire Escape'), Stoltz's effortless-feeling songsmithing always delivers something worth smiling or bobbing your head over.
