Villagers’ Conor O’ Brien seems to be on a mission to play his acoustic guitar on every street and building in the world. He is like the musical equivalence of the Google car.

At the end of May he was in Manchester, he was at the Deaf Institute and recorded the wonderfully haunting ‘Set the tigers free’. It was for Manchester Screenwipe.

He did the same song in Paris last week.

It is taken from the beautiful ‘Becoming a Jackal’ album which came out last month to an array of glowing reviews.
