The Morning Benders // “Big Echo” : 2010.03.09 : Rough Trade
genre power baroque
sounds like wall of Roccoco. air conditioning and soft carpet. calling for the captain ashore. tea kettle whistles, water glass percussion and kitchen sink acoustics. a platter of ripe fruit.
notes I don’t feel I’m being over the top when I say it reminds me of a good Beatles album. it’s quite obvious this was produced by Chris Taylor.
verdict best album of the year?

I don’t feel complete unless I’ve compiled a list ranking my favorite music of the year (too many NYEs spent up late listening to the top 100 countdown on the headphones.) So, here goes:

genre folk space pop
sounds like gossamar architecture. prog rock angels. a massive mountain at sunset. playing in the church lawn.
notes best album cover I’ve seen in a long time.
verdict absolutely stunning masterpiece.
