David Kilgour & the Heavy Eights perform "Left by Soft" live in New Zealand

David shares some details about the video and his one-of-a-kind guitar: “We were playing at the Empire in Dunedin, an old bar that only holds abut 140 people and was made famous by the old Dunedin Sound-ers.



David shares some details about the video and his one-of-a-kind guitar:


“We were playing at the Empire in Dunedin, an old bar that only holds abut 140 people and was made famous by the old Dunedin Sound-ers. The guitar I’m playing is a hybrid—the neck is off an oldish Epiphone acoustic, and the body was made by a guitar dude called Rob Scott. One weird thing about it is that the pickups sit on rails, so I can move them to whatever position/sound I want. It has the sound of mountains collapsing, especially at volume.”



Left by Soft is available on CD and digital download in the Merge store.
