Villagers, Conor J. O'Brien

I've had a few albums on rotation this past week or so, but mainly 'Becoming A Jackal' by irish band Villagers, founded by Conor O'brien. 
The album seems to creep in through the floorboards, and make it self at home uneasily on your shelf, I say uneasily in that the album is at times quite haunting and sinister, like you're being asked to enter a secret doorway which has just appeared in your house, not knowing quite what to expect on the other side.

Here is a beautiful acoustic rendition of Pieces.  Also i noticed he's using a Yairi Parlour guitar, I saw a nice Yairi on ebay the other day, brazillian rosewood and amazing inlays.
