Canadian rocker Michael Rault isn't one to be shy about his influences. After 2015's Living Daylight, where he channeled his inner T. Rex and strutted his way through a winning set of boogie, ballads, and bouncing pop tunes, he takes a different tack on 2018's It's a New Day Tonight. This time around, he takes aim at the Beatles and their solo incarnations, with Harrison-esque slide guitars, chugging midtempos, towering vocal harmonies, and melodic basslines coming together for a sound not too far from Badfinger, but with a classic approach that came about after Rault hooked up with the Daptone Records crew and recorded at their studio.
