With that hoodie and haircut, we're having trouble accepting that Villagers, aka Conor J O'Brien, hails not from Brooklyn or Omaha or Portland but from Dublin. (It could also be the similarities – musical and physical – to another Conor-with-a-funny-pseudonym, Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes.) Still, we love his debut single "Becoming A Jackal", and if you do too he's playing live in London tomorrow and this weekend as part of the Camden Crawl. His album of the same name is out on 24 May.
