Reading Rainbow-Cover The Sky
Reading Rainbow's released one of my favorite records of last year, Prism Eyes, and while I never got around to talking about it, I can say that I spun that record many, many times and "Wasting Time" should have been on everyone's year end top songs. Anyway, the band is back with a new single, a one-side seven inch for the Italian label Hell Yes!, who increasingly seems to grab hold of some great artists (Dum Dum Girls, Crocodiles). The more dreamy "Cover The Sky" would have fit perfectly on Prism Eyes, a mixture of airy, dream-pop build up to a perfect post Galaxie 500 style guitar breakdown, of course filtered through Reading Rainbow's Moe Tucker style playing on guitar. It makes sense when you hear it.
