Today I took my first steps into the wondrous maze that is music journalism and devised a review for the truly phenomenal Villagers debut Becoming A Jackal, on behalf of pop culture site Culch.ie. With no previous experience other than the ramblings on these bare pages it wasn’t the easiest of tasks but with an album of this quality, it was more a case of keeping the superlatives in check as opposed to struggling to find things to say.
If you haven’t already checked out Villagers’ efforts, you really should do so and below is an example of Conor O’Brien’s supreme talent in the form of Set The Tigers Free and a stripped down, acoustic version of The Pact (‘I’ll Be Your Fever’). Enjoy!
The review itself meanwhile, can be viewed here!
