Coming up tonight on the World Cafe, host David Dye welcomes Villagers.
The Irish band is led by Conor O'Brien, whose stunning 2010 debut, Becoming a Jackal, was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Their new album, Awayland, draws on soul and techno, as we'll hear in Villagers' extraordinary live performance tonight. Plus, O'Brien explains the enduring uncertainty he feels as a songwriter. Tune in tonight for the World Cafe at 8pm, on 90.5 WCBE Columbus.
