As a fan and follower of The Morning Benders on various social networks, I’ve seen a lot of hostility thrown at POP ETC just because you know change is bad. This is the same lovable band with the same lovable songs simply expanding their tastes and their instrument collection, which is a fine thing that [...]
The Morning Benders’ POP ETC‘s “Live It Up.” Chris Chu getting down. POP ETC is due June 12 on Rough Trade.
Amid the chaos of moving in the rain yesterday, I saw that The Morning Benders had updated their Facebook status with the message, “This will be the last post from The Morning Benders. Thank you all very much.” This was terrifying until I realized the next post was a name change announcement. Some very good [...]
Stroked, Stereogum’s latest album tribute compilation (a la Enjoyed and OKX), features a cover of every track for the 10th Anniversary of The Strokes’ Is This It. We’re old! My favorites by The Morning Benders, Real Estate, and Owen Pallett are below. Get a free download and more info on the comp, here. Real Estate [...]
For those of you in or around the LA LA Land metro area, you should definitely probably go to the Make Music Pasadena fest this summer. Your favorite bands are playing! Best Coast, The Morning Benders, Ra Ra Riot, Kisses, and Zola Jesus are among the initial acts announced today for the free music celebration [...]
The Morning Benders Soundcloud account has been a very busy Soundcloud account (the band recently uploaded a ton of covers and a Britney Spears remix). Lead singer, @ChrisChu, tweeted yesterday about a song called “Oh Annie”: “My only regret with ‘Big Echo’ is that this song wasn’t on it.” The track is included in the [...]
In addition to posting nearly a dozen ‘bedroom covers’ on their Soundcloud a few hours ago, The Morning Benders also threw up a remix/cover (more of a remix) of Britney Spears’ “Til the World Ends” (pointed out by PMA) from her latest mostly awesome album, Femme Fatale. I was also promised a “California Gurls” cover, [...]
In support of Japan in the wake of the truly terrifying events that have unfolded there, The Morning Benders are giving 100% of the proceeds of their new, 8 track Japan Echo EP to the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund. The EP features 6 remixes of Big Echo tracks from the likes of Twin Sister [...]
It’s fair to say that Ra Ra Riot had a little trouble matching the irresistible charm of their debut LP with last year’s The Orchard. It’s also fair to say that The Morning Benders may have produced a remix of album highlight, “Too Dramatic”, that’s better than the original. Yes? (Stereogum premiere) Ra Ra Riot [...]
The only way to get this year’s playlist up later than I did last year was to do it on NYE. Luckily, I kept a running list through-out 2010 that ended up with about 100 songs on it (too many!), and had to ax a lot of favorites. So, if the below 60 song playlist [...]
