Cloudland Canyon/Citay
split 7”
(Intercoastal Artists)

Galaxie 500 covers from what seems like a logical pairing of bands, both for the covers and a split, though I’ve heard just a little from either group. Citay take on “Tugboat” with great respect for the Galaxie vibe, a pretty straight tribute, and there’s a towering guitar solo that seals the deal. Cloudland Canyon get appropriately blissed out with their version of “Temperature’s Rising,” more abstract and smeared in a way that connects the dots over to MBV and Spacemen 3. Should be a fan pleaser, but first, for gosh sakes, go after those recent Galaxie reissues if you need to and haven’t already. (
