Founded by Ross Simonini and Ben Bromley, NewVillager is a group of musicians and artists currently living and working in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn. They have performed live music and built installations in museums, galleries, and concert halls, including Jack Hanley gallery in New York, Human Resources in Los Angeles, Fredericks and Freiser in Chelsea, and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. In 2011, they released their debut, self-titled album on IAMSOUND records. All of their music, drawings, collages, videos and installations are made using the monomyth, a narrative pattern found in ancient and contemporary mythologies.
The band's first single, Rich Doors/Genghis On was released by Two-Syllable records and Moodgadget in 2009, and was acclaimed by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, the Irish Times, Stereogum, TimeOut New York, RCRDLBL and the NME, who described the band as "pop shamans taking meticulous steps towards a mysterious, musical nirvana."

In 2011, NewVillager will release their debut with IAMSOUND records along with a video for their first single, "LightHouse," and a narrative trailer for their album. In 2011, the band will build a interactive physical environment in New York City and publish a 1000 page book.
Vensaire is kind of like Animal Collective on acid, it's really catchy but dreamy and trippy at the same time. The boys in the band are a good looking bunch and put on a great show (when they aren't too wasted). They are brand-spanking new, so talk about this band at a party and reach uber-hipness. - Guest of a Guest
