The Villagers singer has a voice somewhat reminiscent of Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant. "Becoming a jackal" is a song that's dreamy and calming. Simple rhythms are layered together to create this beautiful song. It has both a day and night vibe to it. I can picture this song being performed in the morning part of a music festival and I can see it performed at night time in a small venue as people sway back and forth as the chorus comes on "I was a dreamer starring out windows." This song makes me wonder what his other stuff sounds like.
