Kelly Stoltz is what you'd call a lifer. The San Franciscan home recording nut has been bottling his own brand of classic pop sugars since the 90s, back when we had braces and years before the Bay Area likes of Thee Oh Sees or even Girls began channeling/dirtying up throwback sonics not nearly as golden. Well, almost. His latest, To Dreamers, is set to arrive October 12 via Sub Pop and though his devotion to the era holds true, it's not just another half-hour seminar on the breadth and beauty of all things Beatles/Kinks. Lead mpfree "I Don't Get That" sounds instead like noble pursuit of the perfect song. It doesn't come up short.
