Format: Audio CD
Sometimes a buzz band earns its keep. Such is the case with The Morning Benders' first full-length CD, which refines and expands upon the cheerily-depressed power-pop of their two earlier EPs. The group's defining sounds remain Chris Chu's vocals (high, melodic and often double-tracked) and hook-filled melodies, and their DIY self production leans to a narrow, nearly monophonic soundstage that provides the punch of great AM pop. Chu's songs of broken hearts, retribution-laced screeds, and the occasional thought of reconciliation are just the sort of `go ahead and try and pull yourself up by your bootstraps' pep-talks from which power pop legends are made.

Though Chu's voice strongly echoes that of The Shins' James Mercer, there's also a dose of Ray Davies' quixotic sing-song as the lyrics mull over unfaithfulness that can't be unrung ("You know very well what you did that day"), hearts that can't be unbroken ("Now I've got no heart left"), and a good deal of healthy whining and wallowing ("Why can't you just say what you mean?" and "I've seen love kick a man while he's down"). There's also the sense of melancholy of early `70s UK pop bands like Edison Lighthouse, Flying Machine and Marmalade. The album grabs you with its punchy mix, especially the up-front drums and bass. The spare use of organ adds a touch of mystery to songs that slam one into the next with nary a breath between; the drum segue from "I Was Wrong" to "Loose Change" is the sort a college DJ would brag about for years.

Chu lashes out here and there, but he's more contemplative of his plight than despondently lovelorn. Still, you get the life and death sense of a 20-something falling in and out (mostly out) of love.

The Morning Benders are fantastic. Saw them live last night and just had to pick up their CD. Catchy LOFI indie rock
