The Morning Benders - Saturday, Nov 6th @ Cabaret Mile End

morningbenders1.jpgEarlier this year, I was struck by The Morning Benders' fantastic old school style harmonies and sounds when a friend of mine sent me the link to this video. Ever since I have been trying to bless my ears with as much of their music as possible. I'm still not over it, and lucky for me (and for all of us montrealers) we get the chance to see them play live tomorrow night, Saturday, November 6th, at Cabaret Mile-End.

I've done some research and according to my findings, their music should be even better live than it is on their excellent new record Big Echo. According to an interview with a band at KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic, the title refers to the spacious sound that the band wished to preserve, both from the old school style music that inspired them and from the spaces that they have recorded and mastered the album. The title also refers to the echo of things past: memories, experiences, etc. Their sound represents just that: The Morning Benders' music is dreamy, spacious, romantic, unpretentious and it has a really nice kick to it to top it all off.

Some of you might remember seeing this band this past summer at Osheaga, and for those of you who could only wish to hear more of their live sounds, this is your chance to catch them as a headlining act. Also on tomorrow's bill, Oberhofer and Twin Sister. Doors open at 7 PM and Oberhofer is to kick off the evening at 8 PM, followed by Twin Sister (8:50) and then The Morning Benders are meant to begin their set at 10 PM.
