If you haven't discovered The Morning Benders yet, I urge you to rush to your nearest record store or, who are we kidding, log onto iTunes and purchase their beautiful album Big Echo immediately. You won't be sorry.
If you haven't discovered La Blogotheque and their ingenius Take Away Shows feature you are sorely missing out. The site features videos of some of my own personal fave bands out there (Beirut, The Dirty Projectors, The Delta Spirit, Bon Iver, Lykke Li, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, etc.) performing in environments that, on your luckiest day, you would probably not get to witness for yourself. Feel like you're right there standing on that street corner in Paris clapping and toe-tapping along by bookmarking it immediately. You can thank me later.
I leave you with the aformentioned performance from The Morning Benders - doing a new song called "Virgins." Stunning.
