The Morning Benders

New Release: POP ETC (formerly The Morning Benders)

SF/NYC band POP ETC (formerly The Morning Benders) may have just changed its name in April, but leaves a lasting impression with its debut album, out today.

POP ETC's debut would have been The Morning Benders' third full-length release. A departure from the band's well-received previous effort, Big Echo, with its lush sound courtesy of Grizzly Bear‘s Chris Taylor, delivers on the group's new name: intelligent, pop music influenced by pretty much every genre.

New Names: The Morning Benders + Fist Fam, Break Ups: Bare Wires

After discovering that the word "bender" is derogatory slang for "homosexual" in Europe, The Morning Benders has changed its name to POP ETC. Read more about the decision here and download a new mixtape in anticipation of the band's third album out June 12.

San Francisco-by-way-of-Asheville, NC psychedelic rappers Fist Fam has changed its name to Weekend Cult, according to the guys a name inspired by "mushroom addled backwood bonfire gatherings." Stream the latest LP from the boys here or below.

According to SF Weekly, Oakland's gritty, garage trio Bare Wires has broken up after a disastrous South By Southwest which resulted in the band canceling the rest of its national tour. We're looking forward to hearing frontman Matthew Melton's new "pop" project called Warm Soda.
