David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights – Bobbie’s A Girl – Ltd Ed, Red, Colored Vinyl, Merge Records, 2019

Indie Exclusive. David Kilgour’s 11th solo album, Bobbie’s a girl, is a quieter affair than fans may associate with the pioneers of New Zealand indie rock. Largely missing the jangly distortion of Kilgour’s other work, the album’s ten songs exude a hazy warmth, with a light psychedelia that recalls the ’60s outfits like The Byrds and The Velvet Underground.
