David Kilgour & the Heavy Eights, the Shifting Sands

[DRAWING TO A WHOLE] New Zealand musician David Kilgour is best known as co-frontman for seminal jangle-punk outfit the Clean, but his solo material also deserves to stand alongside his main band’s best work. Kilgour’s new album with his longtime backing band, the Heavy Eights, balances the midtempo jangle he’s become known for in later years with swift, brisk blasts of guitar pop that skew toward the noisier end of the spectrum. “Lose Myself in Sound” and the fantastic “Some Things You Don’t Get Back”—my pick for the best album closer of 2014—are carried by waves of distortion and rumbling basslines, highlighting Kilgour’s skillful and highly underrated guitar playing. If you’re a fan of Yo La Tengo, Pavement or anything Matador or Merge released in the ’90s, really, then this is a show you simply cannot miss.
