New Song from David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights!

Sometimes all you have to do is express a wish...

Last week, I shared a new video from David Kilgour and The Heavy Eights, of the song "Diamond Mine" from their 2011 album Left By Soft, and expressed in that post the hope that something new is in the works.

Well, fate smiled. Our friends at Fishrider Records took a minute to send us a note about the existence of this new song, "Christopher Columbus". Fishrider has several really good jangly NZ bands, including The Shifting Sands, who share members with Kilgour's Heavy Eights. We've featured several of them on this blog. Here's the new Kilgour song:

And it's available for free download. It's a good day.

Cool, excited for his new material. This song fits right in with his dreamy kiwipop work.

In somewhat related news, The Bats are coming to the US to play the NYC Popfest on May 30th.
