After releasing his last four albums on indie standard Sub Pop, San Francisco’s Kelley Stoltz has made the leap to Jack White’s Third Man Records for his next LP Double Exposure (his first in three years), due out September 24. The SF mainstay announced his new record on Wednesday, dropping the first single, an ethereal proto-psych trip-out called “Kim Chee Taco Man”.
Double Exposure was recorded at Electric Duck Studio, which is a converted garage behind Stoltz’ house. According to Third Man, the studio is home to “a collection of vintage synths, 17 guitars, tape echos, mellotrons, a ’50s jukebox, a Teardrop Explodes poster, a tape machine used by The Residents, an amp used by Stooge James Williamson, and a myriad other noise making devices which rear their heads on his new record.” Other San Francisco acts that have laid down tracks at Electric Duck include Sonny & the Sunsets, The Mantles, Tim Cohen, Life Stinks, and The Sandwitches.
Stoltz will celebrate the release of Double Exposure at The Chapel on Saturday, September 28 with The Mantles and long-lost SF psych act from the ’60s Sopwith Camel. Listen to “Kim Chee Taco Man” and get full details on the record release show below.
