Just in case you forgot: Today is the official release date for Reading Rainbow‘s new full-length, Prism Eyes. And, just in case you don’t know where to pick up a copy, the lo-fi duo has conveniently posted all of the pertinent information on their website: “Go run out to your local record store, and it will be in the ‘ALTERNATIVE’ section next to Red Hot Chili Peppers and R.E.M.!!” Those less inclined to leave the house can order a physical copy of the album from Hozac Records (first 200 copies on vinyl are a limited gold edition), or download the album from iTunes.
Prism Eyes has already received a handful of positive reviews, but our favorite comes from Consequence Of Sound—which echoes what we’ve been saying since the day we launched The Key: “Now that Baltimore has finally gotten its due as a great American music town, let’s talk about Philadelphia. This is a city that, in recent history, has given us the venerable How I Got Over by The Roots and the “constant hitmaker,” Kurt Vile (not to mention Free Energy, Man Man, and a barrel of others). But now that Reading Rainbow’s debut pop masterwork Prism Eyes LP is out on HoZac, it’s officially Philadelphia’s time.”
