This is what I like to see in a budding young band. Along with their trippy and ambient nature, Reading Rainbow deals in great doses of nostalgia, and a full commitment to the origin of the band name. Their debut EP was named Summer Reading and hell, their MySpace URL is even a semi-tribute to Levar Burton-- a true legend in my book (pun intended). It's ambitious, and from the looks of their new video, it works for the most part. Hopefully the rest of upcoming album Mystical Participation comes across similarly. Mystical Participation is out August 1st, and is currently not affiliated with a label. You can grab it on vinyl from Single Girl, Married Girl or Slipshod Mucus Kiss. Check out the video below, and see mp3, courtesy of Gorillavs.Bear as well.
