David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights

This week’s finds from the great beyond:

1. David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights: End Times Undone (Merge, Aug. 5)

The former Clean frontman delivers a solid set of jangly rock. New Zealand in the house.

2. Lewis: Romantic Times (Light In the Attic, digital now, CD Aug. 26)

Weirdo record-bin find turned smooth-pop sensation. A surprise second album from the newly unearthed chanteur. (If this is all a hoax, it’s one of the most fun in recent memory.)

3. Gobby: Wallet & Cellphone (1080p, Aug. 5)

Whacked-out NYC producer offers up yet another collection of strange samples and skewed acid beats.
