The Morning Benders - Big Echo

Sometimes I'll find a band with a handful of songs I really enjoy, but for whatever reason, it's not enough to make me investigate them any further. Then later that band will come out with better songs that slap me in the face and say "now are you gonna pay attention, punk?"

In my book, The Morning Benders are now officially worth paying attention to. They went from a pleasant distraction between Shins albums (plunking out folksy love tunes), to a band that's broadening their sound and adding some serious depth.

If you yourself can't fully investigate and take in a full album, at least listen to the mesmerizing first track "Excuses."
