The Morning Benders released their album Big Echo, which was produced by Grizzly Bear‘s own Chris Taylor (that guy’s got a serious future in production- seems like everything he touches turns to sonic gold).
The first two tracks are definitely the strongest, but with each repeat listen the following songs have grown on me. The combination of Taylor’s vintage sounding production with this group’s upbeat melodies works very well.
Listen to the full album in the Lala player on the right, or head to their Web site to check out a few tracks.
If you missed the post with the Benders playing Excuses live, captured by Yours Tru.ly, you can head to his Vimeo collection or scroll through my video collection on the right to find it. It’s definitely worth watching.
