Michael Rault
I'll Be There / Sleep With Me

Michael Rault’s recent LP 'It’s A New Day Tonight' (confusing title, that) was a set of ornate, bespoke pop that leaned hard into late-period Beatles. Two of the album’s standout cuts - the punchy ‘I’ll Be There’ (closest Beatles track: ‘Here Comes The Sun’) and the more psychedelic ‘Sleep With Me (closest Beatles track: ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’) - now get treated to a limited 7” release. ‘I’ll Be There’/‘Sleep With Me’ is out via Daptone’s more rockist Wick imprint, which makes sense.

The Mystery Lights
Too Much Tension!

Very scrappy and committed punk rock from The Mystery Lights. For WICK (a Daptone subsidiary), the band release their second album Too Much Tension! This is a record that moves like a cannon, barrelling through while drawing on the likes of The Kinks and Television. Best is the lead singer's powerful yelp that acts as guide to the the songs. 

The Ar-Kaics
In This Time

Pilfering a good 60-odd years worth of music history for inspiration we bring you Richmond, Virginia garage rockers The Ar-Kaics and their new album In This Time. Whether it’s true or just press release bluster, the band don’t get on with each other too well, but that’s okay because they all have their parent bands - Chain & The Gang, Pygmy Lush and The Shirks to return to if things get too much. Produced by Wayne Gordon and Mikey Post who have production credits such as Reigning Sound, Black Lips and King Lizard between them. LP and CD on Wick.

Benny Trokan
Gone / Turn Back You Fool

Gone/Turn Back is Benny Trokan’s first solo outing. He has previously played bass with The Jay Vons, Reigning Sound and Lee Field’s Expressions. Here he offers up two songs, one an electric twelve-string led west coast psych strummer and one that’s is more difficult to pin down to one genre, but is delivered with a raw ‘60s teen beat swagger. 7” single on Wick.

Michael Rault
It's A New Day Tonight

Just look at that 'tache.  Suits the music too as this debut from Michael Rault harks back to a 1970s when Badfinger reached the top of the charts and Big Star were the cool underground band who never quite made it.  Think crisp power pop and open hearted folk strumming with careworn lyrics and useful facial hair.  

Mark Sultan
Let Me Out / Be The Blood

Rising star of garage rock, Mark Sultan presents us with two sides of acid-drenched, fuzzy garage punk. Sultan, who has also recorded under the BBQ moniker displays his ability to write classic hooks with instant garage rock classic Let Me Out and psychedelic fuzz racket Be The Blood. 7” on Wick.

The Fame-Beats
Don't Tell No Lies / The Watford Stomp

Aussie rockers The Fame-Beats are here with their debut release ‘Don’t Tell No Lies’, a lilting beat-inspired homage to mid-century British pop, courtesy of Wick Records. But the kicker here is ‘The Watford Stomp’, a rollicking party-starter that wouldn’t sound out of place on an early Beatles-B-side.

The Mystery Lights
The Mystery Lights

The Mystery Lights see themselves at the vanguard of the New York City music scene, bucking the apparent trend of “no good NYC bands”. They buck this trend with high energy guitar rock-and-or-roll, tight and fast and a wee built soulful when they want to be. Their self-titled debut full-length is out on WICK Records.
