The Morning Benders + Freelance Whales + Wild Nothing

The beach is a good place to gather to see the Morning Benders. Their latest album, Big Echo, is a fine example of surfy West Coast reverb pop, complete with exhilarating psychedlic touches. Joining the Benders are fast-risers Freelance Whales. The Queens band makes the right combo of catchy, string-based indie-folk that almost makes you forget how terrible its name is.
