Big City Cough – ‘Born at Night’

“You know you were born at night, right,” Sean Beresford’s mother once asked him.  The Toronto-based artist known as Big City Cough has always been a night owl, and his latest album, Born at Night, is a product of the late hours when most people are sound asleep.

Comprised of pastoral acoustic guitar, occasional violin and pedal steel, and generous portions of soft, ambient space, Born at Night is a gentle ode to alone time in the comfort of one’s own skin.  While the brighter tracks like “Before This There Was Everything” are great at any time of day, wait for the cover of darkness for the spooky “Born at Night” and the somber “Midnight Envelopes.”
