EDITORS’ NOTES

A crackling fire of orchestral folk-pop beckons on this sweeping, epic debut from wooly-hatted multi-instrumentalist Damon Gough. There’s an undoubted DIY feel to The Hour of the Bewilderbeast (see 45-second bossa nova interlude “Body Rap”) but there are plenty of polished triumphs amid the captivating sonic scribbles. “Pissing in the Wind” transports country-tinged yearning to a rain-soaked northern England street, and “The Shining” is an impressively grand, horn-drenched heartbreaker.
