Sloppy, Gorgeous, Perfect

There's something about the intimate, homemade feeling of this album that makes you feel like you're sitting in Kelley's basement getting baked while he plays it for you. The record sounds like a stoner savant's take on the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and the Velvet Underground, and the melodies are gorgeous. Everyone I've turned onto this album has played it obsessively. You will too.


I was first introduced to Kelley Stoltz by a summer fling's mix for me...needless to say I nixed the dude but my adoration for Kelley Stoltz blossomed into a full blown crush. I've had this new release for several days so far and haven't been able to stop listening to it. Give it a listen and you'll hear the wide ranging list of "sounds-like..." but most importantly you'll hear how much fun it is, and how much fun he seems to have had creating this album. Birdies Singing and Ever Thought of Coming back are two really catchy songs, but I love them all for the moods that they create. This, and all other Kelley Stoltz albums are wonderful and deserve lots of play.

Those songs caught the ear of Monte Vallier, who helped Stoltz clean...
