David Kilgour is on tour in the US with Euro's Child (featuring former front man from Gorky's Zygotic Mynci). Pitchfork jokes " Whaddya get when you cross Euros Childs and the guy from the Clean? Why, baby wipes, natch! Grrrroooooan. " Anyway, Pitchfork should probably look out cos this time David has the whole Heavy Eights with him on the road – and you shouldn’t mess with those big wave surfing boys.

Posted: Tue Feb 6, 2007 9:31 am
Arch Hill Recordings are very pleased to say that David Kilgour’s sixth solo album “The Far Now” is out today! If you get in quick you will get yourself a copy of the limited edition “Australasian Double” with a ten track bonus disc “Orange Feathers” - containing some outtakes and tracks from his last two albums...

The album is already getting the good word from the critics in New Zealand and abroad.

Russell Baillie in the NZ Herald gives the album FIVE STARS writing “an acoustic-powered psychedelic pop wonderland...it’s one beautiful album”

Grant Smithies writes in the Sunday Star Times “Kilgour’s albums are among the best made in this country...The Far Now may be his best solo album to date”

A number of highly respected US websites also give the album the big thumbs up. Spacelab writes “David Kilgour’s latest release The Far Now has rightfully made him one of New Zealand’s most veritable folk-pop heroes...The Far Now is one that will make people take notice of him in a new light and find serenity in its soft fluid motions with healing elixir strings.” http://www.thespacelab.tv/spaceLAB/2007/01January/MusicReview-10DavidKilgour.htm

Popmatters gives the album 8/10 and writes “Whether it’s how he records or how he plays or just how he is, his songs have always been more than the sum of their parts, luminous, mysterious and inexplicably gorgeous.” http://www.popmatters.com/pm/music/reviews/9177/david-kilgour-the-far-now/

David Kilgour - Frozen Orange - Out Today!
Posted: Mon Sep 6, 2004 7:46 pm
Frozen Orange is David Kilgour's latest offering and a slight departure for him - not so much in style as in method. The idea for the record came about as David was touring the States with both the Clean and solo in late 2001 and early 2002. The 2002 tour in support of A Feather In The Engine featured David as the opening act for his American label Merge mates Lambchop. For the tour, Kilgour recruited several members of the eclectic Nashville collective to serve as his backing band. The experiment was a huge success. During rehearsals in Nashville, David also met Lambchop producer/engineer Mark Nevers (Calexico, Lambchop, Will Oldham and others) who convinced David that perhaps he should come to Nashville to record.

Frozen Orange was recorded almost entirely by Mark Nevers at his Beechhouse Studios in Nashville (2 tracks-"Dogs Barking" and "A Head Full Of Rolling Stones"- were recorded with the Heavy Eights back home in New Zealand), over the course of two visits in the summer and late fall of 2003. Frozen Orange features the contributions of Lamchop members Matt Swanson, Tony Crow, William Tyler and Sam Baker. There is even a surprise appearance by Jason Loewenstein. The album showcases a sublime combination of Kilgour's signature guitar lines and shambolic, quirky melodies with an added twist of country twang and a little bit of R&B/soul courtesy of his friends in Nashville. Frozen Orange also marks the first time that Kilgour has relinquished control in the studio to an outside producer; such was his faith in Nevers and his vision for the project.

An interview with David will screen on Headliners tonight (5.30pm) as well as footage from his new video for 'Living in Space'. The video was made by Bridget Sutherland and filmed around the traps and in the Nashville studio.
