San Francisco's Kelley Stoltz
is practically a scholar on the matter of vintage rock. So we have high hopes for his next Sub Pop release, To the Dreamers
, which is due out October 12. Stoltz's last record, Circular Sounds
, tread a familiar path of '60's-indebted pop/rock -- and we mean that in a nice way. Lyrics about San Francisco and a pleasantly musty production make it a reliable slab of harmony-laden, Kinks-y rock. Sub Pop says To the Dreamers
will show more of a post-punk edge, which has our eyebrows raised in curiosity. The album will also feature a cover of '60's psych tune "Baby, I Got News For You
," on which the song's creator, "Big Boy" Pete Miller, performs with Kelley on the same guitar and amp he used for the original. Sounds cool, eh? Catch Stoltz when he's sorting through the stacks at Grooves Inspiralled Vinyl
on Market Street, and he might even tell you a bit more about it.
