Falling Debris

The making of the LP really has been an organic process. As opposed to a pre-planned idea. I also think of the word serendipity - finding pleasing or valuable things in unexpected places. It’s been a great pleasure making this record. Sam has brought us a lot of joy.

David Kilgour’s new album, Falling Debris, is a collaboration with the poet Sam Hunt. From what I’ve heard so far, it sounds stronger than his last album, The Far Now (although, to be fair, The Far Now isn’t a particularly immediate album, I came to love it greatly).

On the basis of Chord (video below), there’s a distinct Robert Forster influence. After one listen, I ordered the album from New Zealand (the recession will not interfere in buying albums with this much potential).
More information about the album, as well as some free downloads, are on Kilgour's website.

Yes, it is a wonderful with a distinctive Forster (and Go-Betweens) feel to it, partly through the use of a more relaxed, less mannered singing style and also the lyrics which are more like those great Forster & McLennan verbal landscapes. And it sounds fucking warm and immediate and jangly too!
