Villagers – I Saw The Dead (2010)


Conor J. O Brien

The first time I put on the The Villagers’ Becoming A Jackal, I could hear the past. Not only are Conor O’Brien’s lyrics sepia-toned, but the music also draws on influences I admire greatly. Passing over the Love-tinged folk-pop of the title track, I select ‘I Saw The Dead’ for the sound of Peter Gabriel’s Genesis. It’s a dark start for an album and a cold week. Have a good one.
