Introducing: Villagers

Although it would be safe to assume that Villagers would be a group, or at least 2 people, it is not. Villagers is in fact one very talented man, Conor J O'Brien. The Irish born singer/songwriter mixes elements of folk, indie pop and sun-drenched, hazy awesomeness. His shows in the US have been rare and limited to the coasts until now. He'll be in town playing Schubas in September and it would be a crime if you didn't drop $12 to see him. Although I don't see him becoming a certified phenomenon, it seems as though he's getting some wind in his sails and that makes me happy. His first single, "Becoming A Jackal" is doing so well, the video is FREE this week on iTunes. Check out the second single, "Ship Of Promises" recorded live in his apartment which seems about the same size as Schuba's, See you guys there...
