Album: Big Echo (Rough Trade,2010) Chart pos:N/A
Despite avoiding 'hip indie bands' for the last decade due to some totally dreadful overhyped bands, i decided to buy The Morning Benders second album Big Echo on a whim. On first listen the album seems to take a while to sink in, despite this there is some stand out tracks. Excuses is the opening track from the album is a sunny indie-pop number that is indebted to the Beach Boys (especially in its endless use of vocal harmonies). The song is the finest moment from an album that has had a bit of a muted reaction in the press.
Here is an amusing ukulele cover.
