Editorial Reviews

End Times Undone offers a robust sampling of the styles Kilgour has mastered over the last three decades. For an album that comes so late in one's career, it s a surprisingly convenient entry point into Kilgour s body of work. After a psychedelic intro, opener "Like Rain" immediately identifies itself as vintage Kilgour, with shimmering guitars that gracefully swell and secede. "Lose Myself in Sound" will appeal to fans of The Clean who favor songs where the band chugs along on a blissful straightline path. While the album has its share of abstract lyrics, this title is one to take seriously.

Normally, I require more time to synthesize the effect of new music before finding the confidence to rate it, and that is certainly true when the initial temptation is to give it 5 stars. Given that most music purveyed by conglomerate music publishers/distributors should be safe to flush, any exceptions should be well considered. But in the case of David Kilgour, who is emerging as one of the most important artists (if not one of the most well known) of the last few generations, the first few bars of the first track on "End Times Undone" were enough to convince me that he found his voice long ago and each successive release is a new layer of complexity on top of an increasingly important body of work.

In a just world, or at least a world that averted the trap of turning music into disposable commodity, Kilgour's body of work would inspire "Who was the walrus?"-like questions and conspiratorial conjecture along the lines of "every track #6 on every Kilgour release is always totally badass." (Track #6 on "End Times Undone" would confirm such a statement, though I'd make a case for his tracks #8.) In response to the capitalistic assumption that all "good" music should have the potential to explode upon an adoring public that willingly parts with its cash and adulation, Kilgour's body of work--dating back to the early days of The Clean--confirms the ultimate truism that money can't buy everything. But my money DID buy "End Times Undone," as well as every other Kilgour release and I--at 51--am happy to have parted with it and would gladly call myself a hypocrite if he got the attention he deserves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another quiet success September 29, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
These ten short songs capture the buoyant mood of this singer and guitarist from longtime New Zealand indie stalwarts The Clean. Backed by guitarist Tony de Raad, bassist Tom Bell, and drummer Taane Tokona, these modest songs begin in spirited good cheer.

So much of the music from these islands gains its ambiance from the setting, and this record feels both lazily played and carefully arranged. That is, while the recording of this over the past few years came from not steady tinkering over songs but days now and then when the Heavy Eights convened to record quickly, the combination of leisure and efficiency sinks into these congenial grooves.

Many of these modest, affable, or more dour tunes display Kilgour's three-plus decades of songcraft simply and deftly. As the album progresses, Kilgour deepens the resonance of his vocals in the mix as he contrasts chipper instruments with darker words. Again, it's a humble success, getting more dense and less bouncy as it goes along.

Similar to albums by The Clean, "End Times Undone" feels longer than it is, in a good way. It packs pleasant moments into its short span, but it prefers to settle down with a listener ready for unsettled introspection, immersed in intelligent songs from a reliable musician fronting a solid indie band.

4.0 out of 5 stars warm & tasty indie guitar/jangle pop/rock August 26, 2014
Format:Audio CD
9th album from former leader of legendary New Zealand band, the Clean—warm & tasty indie guitar/jangle pop/rock. Kilgour mixes strong hooks & melodies with unusually adept guitar playing and a creative sense of psychedelic roots rock to mold songs with a subtly organic, comfortable pop flow. Perhaps not as memorable as 2011’s “Left By Soft”, but still a decent listen. Sometimes reminiscent of bands like Eleventh Dream Day, the Chills, Tall Dwarfs, Yo La Tengo, Verlaines, Antietam.
