It’s difficult to say anything mean about Villagers. Irish man Conor O’Brien, in his Fairisle knitwear, is like the even shyer brother of Graham Coxon and Conor Oberst. Awwww. They’re a gorgeous band, especially if you’re into the folky, ‘saying something meaningful’ vibe. ‘The Bell’ is one of their most upbeat, inventive tunes, like a more sensitive Metronomy.
