Michael Rault, Globelamp, and Guests

Sat., March 7, 7:30 p.m. 2015 All Ages


Among those whose record collections include titles from Big Star and Badfinger, Michael Rault deserves a warm reception. Rault hails from Toronto by way of Edmonton, and his debut, Living Daylight, plays as if punk has yet to happen. He inhabits a power-pop world full of tambourines and cheap sunglasses (Redd Kross can be found haunting the same bubblegum-scented space). Sometimes, Rault growls like Marc Bolan; at others, his voice stretches until it shatters into a million shimmery pieces. If his cover of "Dancing with Tears in My Eyes" seems especially rickety in light of X's stellar version, fuzz-pop gems like the Beatlesque "Suckcess" win the day. Simpatico opener Elizabeth Le Fey of Globelamp draws from good-witch influences like Vashti Bunyan and Stevie Nicks. KATHY FENNESSY
