In the meantime, please check out this session at The Current in Minneapolis. David performed "Diamond Mine," as well as songs from The Far Now and talked about the process of making music and art.

Speaking of art, check out Kilgour's paintings at his website. Obviously inspired by nature, both David's music and artwork will only fuel the wanderlust that comes over us all this time of year!

David Kilgour is a guitar god for guitar atheists. He’s worthy of worship, but his style neither demands nor expects it, all of which only serves to increase his otherworldly cool. Left by Soft, his first album in four years with the Heavy Eights, comes on the heels of the Clean’s excellent 2009 outing, Mister Pop.

Download & share "Diamond Mine" and pre-order Left by Soft now in the Merge store.

"Kilgour has been delivering nothing but first-rate music for almost 30 years with the Clean and on his own"~ All Music Guide
