Berkley indie quartet The Morning Benders just recorded an album of covers, the bedroom covers. The songs range from old school (Roy Orbison’s “Crying”) to the quasi-contemporary (The Cardigans’ ‘”Lovefool”), but all have their signature gift for melody. Gotta love a band who’s smart enough to give music away free…especially if it’s covers, then, like why the hell not? It’s not your music anyway, right??

Peep the music below, and/or Download the whole album HERE from their website.
