The Morning Benders: Big Echo

March 8, 2010

I almost cried from happiness when I heard “PROMISES”

Cali-rockers The Morning Benders will release their fourth LP tomorrow, March 9.  On previous albums, their style was playful and easy, but still intriguing and different- like a west coast version of Dr. Dog.  For Big Echo, producer Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear) has expanded their sound in a serious way, doing for them what Nigel Godrich did for Travis on 12 Memories.  The music here is much more dynamic and intense than before.  The band has turned into a unified force that puts out more contemplative, intricate tunes without burying their original vibe.  You can stream the whole album on their website.  Outstanding album from start to finish.

Big Echo is out on Rough Trade Records

Catch them live at Mercury Lounge on April 22
