Villagers - Fever Dreams CD/LP
Villagers' release their fifth studio album "Fever Dreams" via Domino.
Escapism is a very necessary pursuit right now, and "Fever Dreams" follows it to mesmerising effect. It works like all the best records - it becomes a mode of transport; it picks you up from where you are and sets you down elsewhere.
These are songs with the strange, melted shapes and the magical ambivalence of dreams. The intent of the songs is both mysterious and as clear as a bell. With "Fever Dreams", there is a sense of a deepening mastery and an expanding reach by O’Brien.
Inspiration for the album was found in many places and came in from all angles, from night swimming on a Dutch island to Flann O’Brien, Audre Lorde, David Lynch, L. S. Lowry via the library music of Piero Umiliani and Alessandro Alessandroni and jazz from Duke Ellington and Alice Coltrane.
