The Morning Benders

In my quest to find more Bay area indie bands, I stumbled upon The Morning Benders who are playing at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop with Trainwreck Riders tonight. Every once in a while I read a band bio and chuckle. This is one of those times:

“One year ago in the northern region of California among the rolling hills of Berkeley, our lord God in heaven made love to the sweet sounds of rock n roll and gave birth to The Morning Benders. Started by Chris Chu in a moment of magical bliss, just listening to the music of these four men combined will cure any disease known to man. They blend guitars with love to create songs that sound very much like a gentle morning walk on a warm summers day, when the wind rides on your shoulders and tosses your hair about with its soft caresses. Songs such as I Was Wrong and Heavy Hearts (from recently released EP Loose Change) remind listeners what it feels like to be alive again, creating an emotional spiral of euphoric ejaculations that dig deep into the heart of Indie Rock. Indeed, their music is the music of gods, and their heavy show load this past year has proven them to be quite the presence in the bay area. They are a glowing flower of rock in this little musical garden we like to call Earth.”

After listening, I didn’t ejaculate emotionally or otherwise, but these unsigned guys from Berkeley have a great sound.
