Clock-watching. Nialler9‘s about to premiere a brand-new track from the unreleased Villagers‘ album Becoming A Jackal. Tonight we’ll see Conor O’Brien bring his lone-wolf tones to Later…With Jools Holland. Tremendously excited
*EDIT :: Here’s the track, Twenty Seven Strangers. Nialler also points out that Villagers play Road Records this Saturday at 5pm to commemorate a special 7″ of the Becoming A Jackal single for Record Store Day. *
These videos appeared on the Domino Recording Co. website a few weeks ago. They were filmed in the kitchen of the lovely, tumbledown farmhouse Streamstown he shares out in Malahide ::
If I had an Italia 90 jersey I’d probably don it in the spirit of national pride while tuning into BBC2 tonight at 10 PM to see Villagers deliver that spooky folk magic alongside sets from Paul Weller, Hot Chip and Marina & the Diamonds. Attaboy!
