"It's moody - as in low, subdued," says David Kilgour of his new album, Bobbie's a girl. Kilgour's 11th solo album and first since End Times Undone, Bobbie's a girl is indeed a quieter affair than fans may associate with the pioneer of New Zealand indie rock. "I tended to shy away from too much guitar playing for a point of difference and to mix things up for myself a little," Kilgour continues. The atmosphere of Bobbie's a girl does feel a bit mysterious. Largely missing the jangly distortion of Kilgour's other work, the album's ten songs exude a hazy warmth, with a light psychedelia that recalls the '60s outfits like The Byrds and The Velvet Underground.Only four songs have lyrics. "I kind of wanted a rest from verbalizing everything, like listening to yourself going, 'Blah blah blah blah." Kilgour says. The songs that do have words are fairly inscrutable - though in the airy "If you were here and I was there," he sings, "That black cat ain't comin' back," likely referencing Bobbie, the cat on the album cover. The guitar quietly shimmering between channels, the music seems to speak more than the words. Four decades into his career, Kilgour remains as creatively restless as ever. Wherever that drive takes him next, you'll want to follow.
