Kelley Pollar began his musical studies at the age of three with stack of LPs, a plastic Fisher-Price turntable and his six-year-old, disco-loving sister, Blevin Blectum. The two would enjoy long afternoons on their parent's bucolic New England estate, listening primarily to symphonic disco-orchestral
compositions like "Magic Bird of Fire" and the works of Rinder & Lewis. A misspent youth ensued,
steeped in gentle lessons in piano, violin and finally viola, which would become his passion and primary musical vehicle. Read more on Last.fm

Coming off a few days of great string quartet concerts in one life and gratifying response to new music in the other.…saying thanks to everyone listening/getting/enjoying…being thankful for support and to the Graceful Geist for doing the sh#t work to keep an independent label going in the 21st century, to Emilia for humoring me and to Jeremy for slumming it, now I can return the favor and organize some decent lightup-flowery-cloak outfits for Junior Boys shows -kp

Promised the MG I would try to post at least once a week until new album to fight against intrinsic misanthropy. So--
what I did on my summer vacation (a selection.)
Strings for Javiera Mena's awesome album:
(she is kindly returning the favor).
Some more + production for Isla de Los Estados:
I love this song (and Loló).
A remix for the Crystal Fighters (which reminds me of these comic books when I was a kid about these like Masters of the Universe people but they were all made out of different kinds of crystals, hilarious and I do not think the band is referencing this) done while the Quartet was rehearsing Steve Reich's "Different Trains":
I like using high-art things in pop music, but hopefully subversively or not (that) obviously….William Orbit high-NRG versions of Barber Adagio, Orchestras playing Aphex Twin, etc make me want to gouge my ears out, but lots of people seem to like them…and as I have horrendous taste in most things, who am I, etc-----!
Two weeks to new music--- thanks all

Time travel still being notoriously unreliable, I apologize for the time away. It was 15 years well spent, mostly in the Middle Cambrian. Now to business.
A 2-song EP to preview the upcoming album: "I’m Not What You Want” and "Night Song", the former featuring Jeremy Greenspan of the Junior Boys, and the latter featuring a dialogue between myself and a Finnish alien.
10/11 on iTunes exclusive pre-release, 10/18 everywhere else. Digital only. Thanks for support of friends real and ephemeral.
