Kelley Stoltz Signs with Third Man Records for 'Double Exposure'
Published Aug 09, 2013Jack White evidently isn't letting his divorce drama hinder the productivity of his label, Third Man Records. The imprint's latest addition is DIY pop songwriter Kelley Stoltz, who will release Double Exposure through Third Man on September 24 (with the European release following on October 7).
Stoltz recorded Double Exposure in his garage in San Francisco, otherwise known as Electric Duck Studio. He played most of the instruments himself and recorded using an 8-track tape.
The 10-song record was mixed and mastered by Mikey Young. It follows the songwriter's 2010 album To Dreamers, which came out through Sub Pop. In a statement, John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees described the LP like this: "A piece of gold in your ear, A lovely thought in your mind, A breeze in the sun, This record is perfect…"

A press release notes that, in the past few years, Stoltz has produced various bands in addition to experiencing "some love, a little heartbreak, turning 40, deciding to jog everyday, staring at the wall, singing hundreds of songs into the phone, sleeping, recording an album of cover songs with his family, making a couple 45 singles, catching white wine buzzes, getting dropped by Sub Pop, playing keyboards on tour with Rodriguez, and signing on with old supporters at Third Man Records."
