Michael Rault – “Lover’s Lie”
Listening to Canadian psych-pop purveyor Michael Rault’s new song “Lover’s Lie,” I was immediately reminded of Faith Healer’s Cosmic Troubles. Since that’s one of my favorite releases this year, that’s a compliment. But considering they share Edmonton in common, I’m wondering if that city is turning into a psychedelic hotbed? Though Rault has previously released one-offs like “Nothing Means Nothing” and “Still Not Sad,” this song is the first taste of his debut album Living Daylight. If you’re into woozy, lingering bedroom pop full of retro-textured guitars and unrequited emotional commitments, then you’re in the right place. Listen below.
