"This supremely gifted, charming and darkly funny New York oddball has all the makings of the first great singer-songwriter of the young century," hailed the Washington Post, in response to the epic release Get Away From Me, a record that secured performer, songwriter and activist Nellie McKay's place in history as the first female musician to ever debut with a double album.  Nellie returns with Obligatory Villagers, a 9-song odyssey and follow-up to Pretty Little Head, one of the best-reviewed records of 2006.
