Cool and Interesting
Kelley Ryan- Telescope
These mornings on the drive to work it’s dark when I leave the house and it’s dark when I arrive to work. Since I’ve already checked out the news on line, I frequently listen to music. The last couple of mornings, I’ve had the pleasure to check out the new Kelley Ryan release called Telescope. The vocal sounds and the sound of the record in general are about right for me in the morning. Granted, I’m driving 70mph+ on one of the busiest freeways in metro Detroit, but the twists and turns in the melodies and sing along choruses keep me happy and engaged enough so the time goes by quickly on my otherwise mundane drive.
I really like the overall sound of the record and was surprised to find out that even though both Marti Jones and Don Dixon worked on the record, it was Kelly who mixed it. I like the art of subtraction around the supporting instruments to bring out the thing she wants the listener to focus on and the subtle vocal bits she does, close to the mic to create intimacy.
There’s a lot of cool, unanticipated chords that the background vocals make that I’m always a sucker for.
The standouts for me are The Darkest Stars, Pulling for Romeo, and a song she co-wrote with my brother Marshall called Passing Through. Her version of it is particularly gorgeous.
So, I’m giving it thumbs up for drive music. Good job Kelley and supporting team.
