Dream Song 02:51


Michael Rault's second full-length, It's A New Day Tonight, has its home in the darkness, like much rock and roll—many of its songs look at nocturnal activities, particularly sleep. "Sleeping and dreaming were attractive concepts," says Rault. "I was looking for an escape from a lot of frustrating and dissatisfying conditions in my day-to-day life."

As he was working on It’s A New Day Tonight's songwriting, Rault kept entering the orbit of Wayne Gordon, producer and head engineer at Brooklyn's legendary Daptone studio—first through opening stints for the late firebrand Charles Bradley, then while on tour with Aussie shredders King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

The album has the loose-limbed feel of a lost album by '70s bands that bridged the gap between folk-rock's open-hearted strumming and power pop's crisp, melody-forward confections—Wings, Badfinger, Big Star, 10cc—yet possesses an energy shot through with 21st-century optimism.
