Boomkat Product Review:
Labels like In The Red and Woodsist thrive on a diet of '60s-referencing basement pop and garage sounds, and to many, Kelley Stoltz is one of that scene's great forefathers. A resident of San Francisco (the same town that bands such as The Fresh And Onlys and Thee Oh Sees call home), Stoltz arrives at his latest album, To Dreamers, with a sound that references not only post-punk immediacy, but also the timeless pop pedigree of Brian Wilson, Ray Davies and Lennon & McCartney - all whilst still coming across as sufficiently DIY to feel lived-in and homely. Mellotrons, dulcimers, chiming twelve-strings and even the occasional horn arrangement help make the record all the more special, while Stoltz's writing is as sharp as ever on cuts like 'Baby I've Got News For You', 'Pinecone' and the awesome 'I Don't Get That'. Recommended.
