I’m a big believer in the fact that there are endless possibilites on how to find new music. Case proven… I was sick all week and seldom left the house. Bored one afternoon I decided to check out a certain music channel’s ‘free on demand’ feature. Looking for something new as always, I spotted 2 videos on there from a band called The Morning Benders. I’ve never even heard the band’s name before, so I was kind of curious.
I started with the video for ‘Waiting for a War’, and was so interested I watched “Boarded Doors.” I sat there the whole afternoon just switching off between the two and then went online to find out what this early 20’s California band was about. I’m not sure I’ve ever fallen in love with a band this fast as I have The Morning Benders. They are like the poppier baby brothers of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. I immediatly went out the next day and brought their debut album “Talking Through Tin Cans”. Song after song, this record just keeps delivering the goods. This album has been the only cd in my player for the remainder of the week. You’d be a fool not to check it out.
The Morning Benders are also currently on tour with Ra Ra Riot and are doing a lot of one-off shows at a Puma store (thats right) near you. The instores are all acoustic and I will be checking that out for sure.
