Villagers


Guys. You GUYS.

I daresay I found a new obsession and I cannot believe that I'm so late on the bandwagon. Villagers, aka Conor O'Brien (yes, he's Irish), started out as a collection of nameless musical poems, but somewhere over the course of time those songs became extremely well crafted and a triumphant accomplishment. Becoming A Jackal, which dropped earlier this week, contains enriched numbers filled with warm instrumentation - most of which is played by O'Brien - wind-whipped into guitar-strafed sensations that are remarkably expansive yet intimate.

If you were like "Hmm..okay," about the youtube clip above, check out the fleshed-out version of the title track below and find yourself completely sold.
