Kelley Stoltz (Podcast #234)

This week, our podcast features the amazing Kelley Stoltz, whose latest album, To Dreamers, is out now on Sub Pop Records. Stoltz’s latest work is another winning batch of eclectic rock-pop from the home recording wizard, but it might be a little surprising to hear a rawer, slightly lo-fi influence also permeate some of the songs. Chalk that up in part to Stoltz’s presence in and around the Bay’s lo-fi scene, as the drummer in Sonny and the Sunsets and an early champion of The Fresh & Onlys via Stoltz’s Chuffed Records. Kelley Stoltz hasn’t abandoned the great Kinkseque pop he’s known for, but it has a bit more nerve this time around.
