I haven’t yet jumped onto the Grizzly Bear bandwagon (I tried, but no), but bassist Chris Taylor did have a hand in producing the Morning Benders‘ impressive sophomore album, Big Echo. I reviewed the disc a couple of weeks ago for the Georgia Straight, although the article doesn’t appear to be online.

Album opener “Excuses” gets the collection off to an orchestral start with old-timey strings and campfire guitar strumming, its gauzy production evoking Soft Bulletin-era Flaming Lips. It’s not quite as punchy as some of the album’s other tracks, but it’s got a woozy daydream vibe that gets things off to pleasant start.
