David Kilgour is most famous for his time spent in the seminal early indie band The Clean from New Zealand. Many bands went on to take inspiration from that band (Pavement, Yo La Tengo, etc.) However, Mr. Kilgour also has a large catalog of solo albums he's put out since the mid 90s. He released positively one of my top favorite albums back in 2007, The Far Now. If you've never heard that one, I HIGHLY recommend you check it out.
Some of his output has been spotty and not as concise as some others, but his newest record with his band The Heavy Eights, ‘End Times Undone’ is in my opinion a return to form, and an earlier, simpler sound. Shoegaze, dreamy, lo fi, and any other cool buzz words you can throw in apply here. I dig it in a big way. It's obviously a little bit more focused and mature than his early career with The Clean, but that's to be expected. No dad rock here, just beautiful fuzzy guitars and swarming melodies.
