The Stylist, Kelley Stoltz’s seventeenth album finds him following up the Third Man Records reissue of his 2001 Antique Glow with a collection of ten new songs.?! The album was recorded early in 2021, and has been languishing in the vinyl pressing log jam ever since—luckily Stoltz writes timeless songs, the kind that might’ve appeared on the fringes of the late ’60s or mid-’80s. Acoustic guitars, synthesizers, drum machines and strong melodies abound.?! As with his other classic records Below The Branches, Double Exposure and Ah! (etc), Stoltz plays most of the instruments himself and records in his home studio in San Francisco.?! Kelley says, “I chose the title The Stylist because musically I guess that’s what I am...?! because of the way I write, at my leisure over a period of months at home, I kinda flit around between styles.?! It’s all in the pop-rock vein, but there’s usually a wide range of sounds and inspiration from song to song.?!

Antique Glow (20th Anniversary Expanded Remaster) by Stoltz, Kelley

Stoltz, Kelley

Antique Glow (20th Anniversary Expanded Remaster)
Third Man

***Third Man Records is proud to release the 20th anniversary expanded edition of Kelley Stoltz’s defining album “Antique Glow.” Originally self-released in miniscule vinyl-only quantities in 2001, “Antique Glow” has served not only as a template for the length of Kelley Stoltz’s twenty-plus year career, but has also served as a compass for other Anglophile, TASCAM 388 home recording acolytes.  Original copies featured Stoltz’s clever, wry and fanciful hand-painted adornments overtop reclaimed thrift store LP jackets, Third Man’s release here utilizes some of those original unused images for a die-cut sleeve that ultimately gives the listener six different possible album covers.  The songs are by and large masterpieces of bedroom pop magic.?!

“I was guzzling wine at my favorite bar in San Francisco, the Rite Spot, and the entertainment that night was some local opera singers singing along with a big video screen showing a collage of various operatic moments with subtitles.?! One particular subtitle, ‘Ah! (etc)’ made me laugh, I thought it was a perfect description of life—the joy of existence against the etcetera of it all, the struggle.?! With a heavy head of rosé it seemed like ecstatic poetry! I scribbled it on a napkin and thought it might make a good title for something” And so the mystery behind the title of Kelley Stoltz’s new record is solved.?! Less of a mystery is the quality contained therein: after twelve releases and a several more under pseudonyms, Stoltz is the word for “one-man-band-home-recording-pop-songs of idiosyncratic character.” A quick follow up to his more power pop and pub rock LP only Hard Feelings offering in the summer, Ah!

Double Exposure by Stoltz, Kelley

Double Exposure
Third Man

***While many rocking bands in San Francisco and beyond claim to be 'garage' bands'—Kelley Stoltz has actually recorded his LP Double Exposure in the garage behind his house.?! And while the car oil stained floors are covered by oriental rugs and there are no snow shovels laying around—there is 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 this record..?!

***KELLEY STOLTZ enters his 20th year in the record business with the release of his tenth full-length album, My Regime.?! This will be his second release for the Spanish label Banana & Louie after prior albums on Castleface, Third Man Records, and Sub Pop.?! A long-time DIY, home recording multi-instrumentalist, Stoltz again engineers, mixes, and plays all the instruments on the album and his unique brand of '60s/'80s pop, garage-rock, and folk sounds seem to have gotten better with age.?! My Regime was recorded during an emotional year that saw him get engaged to marry, his father pass away, and his tenure as rhythm guitarist with longtime heroes Echo & the Bunnymen come to an end.?! Jovial and reflective moods ensued and were put to tape by Stoltz in his Electric Duck Studios at home in San Francisco.?! The first single "Turning Into You" ponders the delight and soul connections of love, while "2020" asks "have you got what you need to ride it out...?!

Extra fine songwriter and longtime bedroom-pop auteur Kelley Stoltz delivers on the promise so many of his records slyly hint at.?! Que Aura is the platonic ideal of a Kelley Stoltz record, which is a very exciting thing indeed.?! Stoltz embraces his best synth-pop tendencies, with this incredibly self-assured set of tender tunes, combining in his own hangdog fashion both a disco-lit abandon and the attendant post-party sighs of dread and remorse. Great songs come out of Stoltz at an alarming rate on any given day but this particular collection is some of his most effortlessly catchy stuff yet.?! Ennui under the disco lights suits him very well—there’s a hearty sip of Pulp-ian white Brit shimmy with a wink, a dash of Fleetwood Mac’s cynically professional late ’70s sheen, and even a spritz or two of Echo and The Bunnymen, which should surprise no one who’s noticed Stoltz has been playing guitar with McCulloch and Company for the past year or so.?!

In Triangle Time by Stoltz, Kelley

In Triangle Time
Castle Face

***BACK IN STOCK!!! Silver-tongued songsmith and true American treasure Kelley Stoltz presents a new collection of instant classics with just a hint more synthery than 2013’s Double Exposure.?! For those not yet in the fan club, Kelley’s like a Ray Davies / Brian Wilson / Tom Petty power pop Cerebus from another dimension where well placed tambourines, handclaps, and wry observations are a universal language.?! Criminally under-appreciated, Kelley’s face should be on Amoeba-bucks for his contributions to the pop canon—the black-lipstick-smeared stand-out and lead-off track “Cut Me Baby” could be his walk-on music for the acceptance speech.?! Each track here leaps off the table with Kelley’s carefully considered wit and expertly layered arrangements.?! His innate way around a sticky hook and no shortage of tasty studio flourishes will bring out the listener’s inner record nerd, guaranteed.?! It’s got a little glam in it and it’s out on Castle Face November 6th..?!
