It's Prefab Spout isn't it ?,
This review is from: Becoming A Jackal (Audio CD)
I like this record...playing at the moment to get me in the mood. Although it's described as Indie Folk there is absolutely nothing Folk about it. If this is within a million miles of Folk Musuc then Jay Z is the new Martin Cathy! No...this is mellow pop..soft rock..Indie Pop ??? I dunno but it's certainly charming in its way.Villagers IS Conor o Brien, a young Irish songsmith from the posh Dublin suburb of Dun Laoghaire.Perhaps this explains why his music is fat and rich,brimming with mellow contentment.
Villagers suggests fellow Irish songwriter Glen Hansard,Paul McCartney but most of all-Paddy Mcaloon of Prefab Sprout.
Melodic,wistful,dreamy.11 tracks of like mien which pour out like honey down the side of a jar.
As the guy in Fast Show would say....'Nice' !
