Soft Hearted Scientists — Please Read Me
(Fruits de Mer Winkle 38, 2019, 7")
by Henry Schneider, Published 2020-03-17
After a lengthy break, these enigmatic scientists returned to the studio in early 2019 to record a cover tune for a year-end Fruits de Mer retrospective that is appearing this spring, but Keith Jones felt that it was so strong that he had to release it as a 7 inch single. And the band enjoyed the experience so much that they created a brand new song to go with it. The result is a cover of a song from the first Bee Gees album, “Please Read Me.” The Soft Hearted Scientists have taken the original into a more trippy pop-psych realm with drones and organ, plus their signature vocals. The flip side is “Moths Mistook Us for the Moon” that is by far the better tune. This melodic acid folk song has their classic sound and evokes the zephyrs of a warm summer’s eve under the stars.
