1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. The Clean member Hamish Kilgours second-ever solo album Finklestein flips the singer/guitarist/drummers path taken on All Of It And Nothing. Having previously gone for intimate minimalistic performances this album displays a chock-full production quality akin to a fairytale. Its a fitting change seeing as the songs are based around a childrens story Kilgour conceived for his son about a kingdom that invents a way of dealing with their depleting gold resources. The songs include organ saxophone pedal steel piano vibraphone harmonica even footsteps Kilgour is renowned for his stepping most of it performed by him and his producer/collaborator Gary Olsen at Olsens studio Marlborough Farms in Brooklyn. Originally conceived as being a childrens book as well as album it rides roughshod through this fairytale world with grace. Finklestein took a year to record as Kilgours involvement with a large part of the Brooklyn music scene as well as dates with recent New Zealand Music Hall of Fame inductees The Clean split his time. His songs benefit from this elongated recording period as each track creates its own space within the albums world mixing instruments and melodies in a rainbow of ways. Yet its Kilgours songwriting sensibilities that hold the album together his charismatic and loose arrangements within a congenial environment of musical play.
