Don’t let their age deceive you.
In December 2008, iTunes deemed Talking Through Tin Cans the best indie/alternative album of 2008.
The Morning Benders recorded their 2010 album Big Echo in San Francisco and mixed it in Brookyln. Chris Chu and Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear) produced it in eleven days. On the twelfth day they rejoiced. There are 10 tracks on Big Echo, which The Morning Benders think is an ideal length for an album.

- LyricsThis spirit is holding us down
We shit our shoulders are in deep
Pulling us to the light
Toasted our backs in the sun
And I waited for the next call
- LyricsIt feels less important when you want to wait it out
I had enough feeling give me what i want or put me on the streets
I'm getting tired of living my life like nothing's happening
Talk is cheap but lies are even cheaper
So it's really me i want you to count the ways you can make it up to me
- Lyricswe met one day in wet cement
where we glued our eyes shut
and pressed with our fists
and while the trees are shrinking now
they forgot their roots
- LyricsDamnit Anna, don't look at me that way
You know very well what you did that day
Yes you know very well
You say you got a soul to sell
But if you wanna meet the devil
