Villagers – Becoming A Jackal (2010)



This is not the first track I’ve featured off Villagers’ debut long player Becoming a Jackal. The Villagers are Conor O’Brien and, I have read, he plays almost every instrument on the album. The Dubliner’s love of Neil Young and Paul Simon is plain to hear. But on the title track, the result is part Elliot Smith, part Prefab Sprout. Very good indeed.
