Talking Through Tin Cans
Released: May 2008
Label: +1 Records
With their quick-witted, catchy, occasionally euphoric pop, The Morning Benders seem to have showed up to the big dance in the Shins' hand-me-downs. Not that it's a bad thing; to stretch the metaphor, they look hella good in them. The lollygagging "Boarded Doors" and rosy-cheeked "Damnit Anna" are put together with meticulous attention to detail -- all groove and chorus. They're just as fetching when they send one out to the ladies, like "Crosseyed."
