Chris Jeely aka Accelera Deck
Accelera Deck is the current recording guise of one Chris Jeely. Since 1997 Jeely has produced 7 full-length albums, and over two handfuls of limited editions 12”, 7” and CDR singles. Pop Polling is his 8th full-length and is a bit of a departure from recent Adeck efforts. All sounds are still created by guitar, but instead of the ear splitting digital workouts found on his “Sunstrings ep” (Scarcelight, 2004), we are treated a collection of songs (yes songs!, like verse/chorus/verse…) highlighting Jeely’s penchant for melody. There is a sublime simplicity that underpins most of “Pop Polling”, and only on occasion does it veer into noisier territory. Mostly we are witness to some delicate feedback and unfolding guitar melodies accompanied by various forms of drones.
