Album of the Month - June 2018
Michael Rault's debut album on Wick Records, It's A New Day Tonight. Available here on LP and CD.
This the 2nd full length from Daptone's rock imprint, Wick Records. It's a New Day Tonight has the loose feel of a lost album by a '70s band bridging the gap between folk rock's open-hearted strumming and power pop's crisp, melody-forward confections – Big Star, Badfinger, 10cc – yet possesses an energy shot through with 21st-Century optimism. The album kicks off with I'll Be There, a full-on guitar assault accented by a rhythm section that does not quit. The title track, New Day Tonight, is a mid-tempo reverie that's elevated by tremolo guitar and delicate strings. It's a New Day Tonight is a modern classic begging to be played loud with the windows rolled down.
