Villagers @ Knitting Factory, 2010 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)

On previous records, Villagers have been primarily Irish singer-songwriter Conor O'Brien. For his new album, {Awayland}, however, Villagers are a full band which takes the songs into heretofore unexplored territory. It's out next week (April 9) on Domino but you can stream it below via NPR.

And if you want to hear it in person, BrooklynVegan is pleased to present a Villagers record release show at Greenpoint's Manhattan Inn on April 11. It's a free show (21+) with O'Brien performing solo, but as Manhattan Inn is a very intimate room, capacity is limited. 10 PM doors, and the show starts at 10:30. Do come out. All dates are listed, along with the show flyer, below...
