***DAVID KILGOUR is a guitar god for guitar atheists. He’s worthy of worship, but his style neither demands nor expects it, all of which only serves to increase his otherworldly cool. Anybody who’s seen the man play live—whether with Kiwi-pop legends THE CLEAN, THE HEAVY EIGHTS, or on his own—knows full well that the instrument is an extension of his body, something he was born to have in his hands. Kilgour has an understated grace; he lets the guitar breathe. Left by Soft, his first album in four years with the Heavy Eights, comes on the heels of the Clean’s excellent 2009 outing, Mister Pop. Left by Soft was recorded in the Catlins, about two hours south of Dunedin, New Zealand, in an old lodge surrounded by native bush, birds, and the sea. David spent about a week down there with the Heavy Eights. THOMAS BELL engineered and produced but also played bass AND cooked the band awesome meals every night. After chilling out most mornings, the band would start recording mid afternoon into the night. Apart from a couple of overblown tracks, they kept overdubs to a minimum and when mixing left most takes as is—no cleaning up via Pro Tools editing, etc. “So to me, it sounds like the band on a good night, warts and all,” says Kilgour. “It’s probably the first real ‘band’ LP I’ve made since Frozen Orange or the David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights’ LP from the mid ’90s.”
