David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights

David Kilgour has a new album with his combo the Heavy Eights - released on April 18. Titled Left by Soft, it is David's eighth solo album and his fourth with Arch Hill.

The album 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. The album is out on Vinyl, CD, MP3 on April 25th from Arch Hill Recordings
