The Morning Benders are, quite unabashedly, one of my favorite current bands out there, and one of the few that I’ve had the pleasure to meet in person, albeit briefly.  So when i heard of a new single coming out by way of the wonderful French blog La Blogotheque there was absolutely no way i could pass it up.  With their debut album Talking Out of Tin Cans being a mainly jangly acoustic affair, it was a pleasant surprise when their follow-up Big Echo showcased their growth wherein they had honed in a more accessible Grizzly Bear sound without forgetting their rootsy background.  “Virgins” seems a grand mixture of both, somehow capturing a similar feel to David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and although performed live, it remains unhindered and quite breathtaking.  Check it out, and if you like it download it over at Art of the Mixtape

I found this over at the wonderful We All Want Someone To Shout For Blog
