    Given the the Heavy Eights' strengths throughout, it makes more sense to say that Kilgour's definitely found his own personal Crazy Horse.

    New Zealand pop lifer David Kilgour's Left by Soft, his seventh proper full-length (and third for Merge), is a lovely addition to the veteran songwriter's catalog.

    The record is a spotlight for his delightfully unhinged guitarwork, which veers frequently into long, eloquent solos.

    Like most of Kilgour's solo work, it has a relaxed and quietly accomplished air.

    Kilgour and his band rip through these songs with a vitality and energy that never loses its careful touch. They build echoing layers without ever obscuring the distinct parts and vibrant melodies of each song.
