Becoming A Jackal

Villagers - Becoming A Jackal

Young Dubliner Conor J. O'Brien -- or as he likes to call himself, Villagers -- is the mastermind behind the 11 varied, subtle, complex and plain gorgeous songs that are the album Becoming A Jackal. Conor played all the instruments (except strings and french horn) and Becoming A Jackal was recorded in Villagers home studio, with Tommy McLaughlin engineering and co-producing alongside Conor. Becoming A Jackal is a startling intro to the gripping poetry and melodic depth of Conor J. O'Brien.
