Stream Telepathic Powers Of Ten EP

Telephatic is a new band out of Philadelphia fronted by members of the now defunct Bleeding Rainbow, who released their excellent final full-length Interrupt over a year ago. Rob Garcia and Sarah Everton’s new project doesn’t sound like their old band, but that distinct Philly edge is still audible, due in part to the fact… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “Glynis” (Smashing Pumpkins Cover)

One item you might want to look for this coming Record Store Day: Non Violent Femmes, a new compilation that features a bunch of female-fronted bands — Speedy Ortiz, Eternal Summers, Joanna Gruesome — from the indie-rock underground. One of the contributing bands is the Philly fuzz-rock unit Bleeding Rainbow, and they take on “Glynis,”… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “Images” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Bleeding Rainbow dropped their new album Interrupt last month. That followup to Album Of The Week Yeah Right brought the band to a heavier, darker place, as on the single “Images.” Below you can watch the video the band directed for the song, which sees them playing through shifting filters and layers of themselves, a… More »

Stream Bleeding Rainbow Interrupt

It’s been barely a year since Philadelphia garage rockers Bleeding Rainbow gave us Album Of The Week honoree Yeah Right, but they’re already back with the follow-up next week. It’s called Interrupt, and its shoegaze/’90s alt-rock proclivities are applied to some of the most exhilarating straightforward rock songs I’ve heard so far this year. Maybe… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “Tell Me”

After inching toward shoegaze with their 2013 album Yeah Right, Philly rockers Bleeding Rainbow are rushing suddenly toward the rawer, noisier corners of the map on their new album Interrupt. Early tracks “So You Know” and “Images” are among the roughest things the band has ever done. But “Tell Me,” the latest track they’ve shared… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “Images”

Philly fuzz-pedal abusers Bleeding Rainbow gave us the soaringly bleary LP Yeah Right last year, and they’re already planning to follow it up with Interrupt, a considerably more cantankerous album. We’ve heard first single “So You Know,” and now they’ve shared the two-minute rocket-blast “Images,” a charged-up thumper that should appeal to fans of recent-vintage… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “So You Know” Video

One of my favorite albums of the young year is Interrupt, the shoegaze-inflected, ’90s alt-inspired turn from the always-morphing Philly rock band Bleeding Rainbow. The public’s first taste of the record was “So You Know,” a midtempo number that clangs, clatters, and shines in especially harmonic fashion. Now that song has a video by director… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “So You Know”

Philly garage harmonizers Bleeding Rainbow earned an Album Of The Week spot just last year for their fuzzily sunny Yeah Right, and they’re already making plans to follow it up with next month’s Interrupt. The album is darker and clangier than what we’ve come to expect from this band, and there’s a distinct ’90s splintered-guitar… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “Oblivion”

Philly garage-poppers Bleeding Rainbow released the excellently beefed-up new album Yeah Right earlier this year, and they sounded great at Stereogum’s Range Life party in Austin a couple of weeks ago — especially impressive when you consider that their set’s noon start time is basically “first thing in the morning” in SXSW time. Now they’re… More »

SXSW 2013: Stereogum Range Life, Featuring Youth Lagoon, METZ, Sky Ferreira, Hundred Waters, Bleeding Rainbow, Lakutis

For an afternoon, Stereogum got the keys to the Hype Hotel, bringing at all-over-the-place lineup of performers to the cavernous space. Bleeding Rainbow opened things up early on, admirably wailing their way through fuzzily direct garage-pop and hitting big, harmonious notes while many of us were still wiping sleep from our eyes. Hundred Waters’ electronic,… More »

Stereogum Range Life 2013 Lineup

In a few weeks we join the herd and migrate south by southwest to Austin, where the bands are second in number only to the brands. And we’re throwing our own branded show (what’s up, Taco Bell and Rdio) rife with great bands and free tacos. It’s called Range Life, as we like to call… More »

Album Of The Week: Bleeding Rainbow Yeah Right

In 2010, back when they were still a duo called Reading Rainbow, the Philadelphia band Bleeding Rainbow released Prism Eyes, exactly the sort of very good indie rock album that gets overlooked all the damn time. There wasn’t any grand narrative to Reading Rainbow; they were just too people who played very good straight-ahead garage… More »

Stream Bleeding Rainbow Yeah Right

On their last two albums, released under the lawsuit-inviting name Reading Rainbow, the Philadelphia band Bleeding Rainbow bashed out catchy, lo-fi garage-pop. But the new LP Yeah Right, the first recorded under their new name, is more fleshed-out and expansive, pushing the band’s harmonies over bleary fuzz-jams that remind me a bit of the Jesu… More »

Quit Your Day Job: Bleeding Rainbow

Philadelphia garage rockers Bleeding Rainbow — formerly Reading Rainbow — have been busy prepping their new album, Yeah Right, due out 1/29 on Kanine Records. Three songs from Yeah Right have been released already: the fuzzy, anthemic “Waking Dream,” the driving, punk-inflected “Pink Ruff,” and the dreamy and catchy “Drift Away.” Founding guitarist and vocalist… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “Waking Dream”

Philly garage vets Bleeding Rainbow — formerly Reading Rainbow — have a new album out in January, a release from which we’ve already heard “Pink Ruff” and “Drift Away.” Now they’ve just released another, a loud-quiet-loud jam called “Waking Dream.” Hear it below. More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “Drift Away” Video

Philly garage-poppers Bleeding Rainbow, formerly Reading Rainbow, will return early next year with their new album Yeah Right. The video for their raggedly catchy new single “Drift Away” alternates foggy band-performance footage with a tough-to-follow stop-motion narrative about a skull-faced alien scientist. Watch it below.

Bleeding Rainbow – “Drift Away”

Earlier this summer, we posted “Pink Ruff,” the first single from a new album that Philly garage-pop crew Bleeding Rainbow (formerly Reading Rainbow) were planning to release this month. Well, that album, Yeah Right, has been pushed back; it won’t be out until early next year. But here’s a pretty great consolation: A furiously catchy… More »

Bleeding Rainbow – “Pink Ruff” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Philly garage vets Bleeding Rainbow will put out a new one in early 2013, a release from which we’ve already heard the ripping “Pink Ruff.” Today, the group rolled through with their spare, bright video, a clip shot with a 16mm and some good old-fashioned know-how. Herb Shellenberger and Michael Thomas Vassallo direct, and here’… More »
