10 Songs, 34 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

A former member of New Zealand’s legendary The Clean, David Kilgour proves he’s just as powerful and relevant in the new century as he was back in his younger days. Production values have improved so much over the years that the sound itself is finally doing him justice; newer releases can provide genuine insight into what it feels like to be in the room with a band. 2014’s End Times Undone is Kilgour's third release with The Heavy Eights and was recorded from 2012 to 2014, with the band reconvening every few months to work on new songs while tapes rolled to capture the natural repartee. From the gentle daze of “Light Headed” to the heavier space out of “Dropper,” the sound is dense and melodic with a sense of normalcy, as if it’s all just another day in the life of a songwriter-rocker. “Comin’ On” injects a country-rock side. “Some Things You Don’t Get Back” suggests Kilgour could do quality work for the rest of his career.
