7digital What we said: This is a concept album set in medieval north Britain - no, stay with us! For his eighth album, Newcastle singer-songwriter Richard Dawson has taken a fascinating delve into the days of yore, exploring the lives of the various inhabitants of former North England kingdom Bryneich, track by track: ‘Soldier’, ‘Prostitute’, ‘Beggar’, etc. Full of the gorgeous kind of instrumentation you’d be unlikely to hear outside of a Renaissance Fair, commanding vocals, and occasional forceful flourishes of choir, the whole record feels as evocative of a bygone era as it does visceral and present. Proggy, avant-garde folk, this is a warts and all exploration of the cyclical nature of the human condition that’s as impressive as it is strange.
