RIYL: Wings, Badfinger, Big Star, 10cc
Label: Wick Records
This one’s been a long time coming for all of you Daptone / Wick Records fans.Â Canadian singer-songwriter and James Taylor lookalike Michael Rault has released a number of full-lengths on smaller labels, but graduated to Burger Records in 2015 for his breakoutÂ LP Living Daylight.Â A fan of 70s AM pop, garage boogie andÂ paisley psych, Rault’s music peers through a foggy vintage rock lens, but hikes forward with youthful buoyancy.Â Â Throw some Big Star, McCartney, Rundgren and Badfinger into a blender and you’ll end up with something like Michael Rault, the perfect addition to any record nerd’sÂ vinyl shelf.
Check out Rault’s first three available tracks for the new album below and be sure to snatch a copy of the vinyl on lilac swirl after the ‘buy’ link.Â Limited product from Daptone and Wick sells outÂ quick.Â I wouldn’t be surprised if these were gone by the end of the day.Â The first 100 orders will get a Wick Records enamel pin.
