After chugging along as Reading Rainbow, Philly’s minimalist noise choir got some cease-and-desist flak from PBS. Hence the name change. The roster got a shake-up, too, with bassist/singer Sarah Everton (formerly the drummer) and guitarist/vocalist Rob Garcia enlisting new axe man Al Creedon and drummer Greg Frantz for a version of Bleeding Rainbow that’s harder but more dreamily psychedelic. On their new 7-inch, “Drift Away,” the girl-boy harmonies are front and center. Two more singles will follow, leading up to Yeah Right, the new full-length scheduled to drop in January. You can’t stop the Bleeding.
