Kelley Stoltz QUE AURA Vinyl Record

kelley stoltz que aura bandcamp

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 that moment, you notice that your partner placed your Face to Face copy in an incorrect slot. Que Aura is the platonic ideal of a Kelley Stoltz record, which is a very exciting thing indeed. He added synths, played around with structure, and made choices he may not have in the past. And hey, maybe if we're lucky Burger will run off a few more. There are only fourteen years away from one record to the other, but they seem made in different centuries, different planets.

Kelley Stoltz: Que Aura [Album Review]

kelley stoltz que aura bandcamp

Prices subject to change without notice. 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. Que Aura is easily one of those albums that nobody talks about, is completely different compared to anything on the Castle Face roster but given a listen will work its way onto some best of the year lists. On his 9th album, this under-recognized San Francisco artist gives us more of his trademark indie guitar pop music. Its also a great example of just how on-fire Burger Records has been over the past few years. I mean, where do they find all of these pop savants? Add to that harmonies and guitar work with an affinity for glam rock, and you have something that redefines the concept of retro. .

KELLEY STOLTZ

It might be easy to overlook someone who's been making solid music for as long as has, to maybe take him for granted a bit, but doing that would be a mistake and one would miss some truly fun, weird, and inspired modern pop. And you dream thinking how would they sound together, in an hypotetic alloy that feels almost impossible straight away. Its astonishing just how many 'true originals' the label has uncovered for the benefit of us all. It goes with you to the record player too.

Stoltz, Kelley: Que Aura

kelley stoltz que aura bandcamp

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. This gig seems to have unleashed something within Stoltz, and along with his trademark '60s-inspired shaggy pop, there are side trips into space rock, warped synth pop, epic Echo-y psych, and even some off-kilter disco. 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. This gig seems to have unleashed something within , and along with his trademark '60s-inspired shaggy pop, there are side trips into space rock, warped synth pop, epic psych, and even some off-kilter disco. Protection Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve. Its purpose was to create a simple place that could showcase records that we liked. This record cements Stoltz's place in the power-pop pantheon where he belongs, right between Dwight Twilley and Martin Newell.

KELLEY STOLTZ

When made the jump to Castle Face with his 2015 album, , he got weird. Filtering and tying those sounds together with freshness and distinction is what makes Kelley an unique composer. Through it all, 's way with a hook means that no matter what sounds he dresses the songs in, they are always one sharp hook away from slicing up the speakers. Either way, something about the way time and space coincided meant that made the loosest, oddest record of his long, mostly buttoned-down career as a pop craftsman. The record has a seamless mix that is made for headphones but has plenty of moments that can find you turning up the volume. Packaging All items are shipped brand-new and unopened in original packaging. Extra fine songwriter and longtime bedroom-pop auteur Kelley Stoltz delivers on the promise so many of his records slyly hint at.

Stoltz, Kelley: Que Aura

A Detroit-native, Kelley was an adolescent moved by post-punk and English new-age, and became an adult falling in love with the extensive pop legacy from the 60s. Que Aura is the platonic ideal of a Kelley Stoltz record, which is a very exciting thing indeed. The focus has always been about the album and the experience that a great record creates. 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. Either way, something about the way time and space coincided meant that Stoltz made the loosest, oddest record of his long, mostly buttoned-down career as a pop craftsman. Every record is shipped in original factory-applied shrink wrap and has never been touched by human hands. Stoltz continues to embrace his best synth-pop tendencies, but the glimmer silvers an incredibly self-assured set of tender tunes, embracing in his own hangdog fashion both a disco-lit abandon as well as the attendant post-party sighs of dread and remorse.
