The Morning Benders 

Wednesday, Dec 30 2009

Following last year's much-loved Talking Through Tin Cans, Berkeley pop hopefuls the Morning Benders have just wrapped Big Echo, their second album. Due in March on Rough Trade, it was produced with Grizzly Bear's visionary Chris Taylor. An acoustic MySpace demo for "Hand Me Downs" sounds a bit Shins-ish, but the best way to preview the material is to catch this New Year's Eve set. Make sure also to witness Miniature Tigers, whose debut album, Tell It to the Volcano, is the catchiest, cleverest guitar-pop this side of Telekinesis.
