Rimbaud, Mike – “Night Rainbow” – [Subway Sun Records]

When I first heard Rimbaud’s gritty voice delivering the lyrics on his fascinating songs, I felt like his music could be classified as country, but then I settled on everyman’s acoustic rock. This NYC musician treats subjects that range from Hurricane Sandy (4) to the woes of today’s economy (8) to the overscheduled nature of life (3, 10) to Beatles covers (11) to how underappreciated teachers are (5) (definitely #6 came to mind on this one). The first song is a treasure with its rainbow references. You’ll either enjoy this or wonder about it, either one of which is a good thing.

    Take the A train and maybe see Paris??? The new music video: ???Slow Down To Get Ahead??? http://youtu.be/XGKq3C8t3Wc

    “No other songwriter has captured the current climate in New York better thanMike Rimbaud.”
    “Britain in 1977 had the Clash: New York in 2013 has Mike Rimbaud. That???s a start. Now bring on the revolution.”
