While listening to a little XMU on satellite radio in the car recently, I found Steve involuntarily tapping his hand out the window during this song… which prompted me to take note to look up these Californian hipsters.
A review reads, “The title to the Benders’ sophomore effort and Rough Trade debut, Big Echo, appropriately evokes their sonic shift in the past two years. The album is a homecoming of sorts, as it finds the Morning Benders correcting their PacNW indie pop identity crisis in favor of a more coastal, kaleidoscopic California haze. It also finds them embracing the cavernous experimental rock sound of Grizzly Bear, whose Chris Taylor shares a co-production credit with Benders singer/guitarist Christopher Chu.” — Larry Fitzmaurice
