ACL 2010 | Spotlight: The Morning Benders

ACL Discovery Series: The Morning Benders

The Morning Benders are one of the most exciting bands that we have had the pleasure to come across this year. Listen to the track "Excuses" and I dare you not to fall in love with this band. Since their explosive run at this years SXSW (including a stop at our SXSW show) the band released one of the best albums out this year "Big Echo", done the festival circuit and toured with Broken Bells and Black Keys. "Big Echo" is filled with so much sunny pop that you can't help but make Brian Wilson comparisons. To really get a feel of the band check out this video of them performing "Excuses" on

Now the band makes their way back to Austin for a 3:00pm slot on Sunday performing on the Lady Bird Lake Stage. We expect great things from this band so we highly suggest catching them early on so when the are headlining in a few years you can brag to your friends. Don't believe us? We said the same thing about Arcade Fire....
