Villagers help to conclude our round-up from All Points East’s August 26th line-up.
Villagers, Public Service Broadcasting and Cassandra Jenkins are among the artists featured in our highlights package from All Points East 2022.
It was a chance to catch Conor O’Brien and Villagers after the release of Fever Dreams last year – a Live4ever album of 2021:
“In this twilight the title-track has a weirdly through-the-looking-glass air to it, the strings and keyboards somehow pinched and degraded, whilst closer Deep In My Heart is a sparkling, reluctant lullaby,” our review concludes.
“If this is an apology to those who found his earlier work too self-indulgent, it’s one of incredible confidence, music to be retold, re-broadcast and reinterpreted a hundred times over before it’s done with us.”
“Life affirming and charming-strange, Fever Dreams is Villagers finally opening their hearts to everyone.”
