Stream: The Morning Benders’ ‘Big Echo’

    Big Echo, the sun-dappled sophomore album from the Morning Benders, is now streaming in full at the band’s website. It doesn’t get much better than opening track “Excuses,” which I’ve embedded below. It’s a move into the spotlight moment for the Benders, who have floated on the edges of scenes across the country (Silver Lake, San Francisco and Williamsburg). The album is due out next week, on March 9 via Rough Trade.
