Kilgour's first band, The Clean, changed the face of rock music when they kick-started New Zealand's pop underground in the early 80's. More than 25 years later, Kilgour still loves music but loves life more, which is why he's still making records that are monuments to good old-fashioned song craft. This is his third record for Merge and sixth solo affair. It takes some cues from its predecessors, the shimmering, trippy A Feather In The Engine and the lush, soul-tinged Frozen Orange, without sounding like either of them. The Far Now is filled with gorgeous melodies, singing that conveys subtle emotion, and effortlessly eloquent guitar playing.

What is the difference between MP3 and FLAC files?

Merge offers the highest quality MP3s possible. They are encoded without DRM using the LAME version 3.97 encoder at non-variable rate of 320 kbps. At this quality level, the sound is essentially indistinguishable from a CD.

We also offer FLAC digital music files. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an uncompressed audio format. As such, FLAC files provide a perfect digital copy of a given piece of music.

MP3s eliminate audio data in order to reduce file size. FLAC files are by definition 'lossless' and are a perfect digital copy of the original source material. Because of this, a FLAC audio file is much larger in size than an MP3 file. While FLAC audio is ideal if you listen to your music on a higher-end home stereo, or enjoy close-listening on headphones, it does not have as widespread playback support as the MP3 format.

*Note: FLAC files do not work in iTunes.
