The Morning Benders free Bedroom Covers

Berkeley's The Morning Benders have a sunny sound that I've recently raved about. Hot on the heels of their lovely release Talking Through Tin Cans, they've now gathered together some of their favorite covers, recorded them in their bedrooms, and are releasing them free to you.

Through a partnership with a few of us music blogs, The Morning Benders are releasing one track each day this week through a different site. The full collection will be available next Tuesday on their blog. For now, here is the Fuel/Friends debut, see below for locations of the other ones:

Lovefool (The Cardigans) - The Morning Benders

The band says:
"These songs sound the way they do, because we recorded them with a laptop and one mic. We used mainly acoustic guitars and shakers because that's what we had lying around, and we couldn't make much noise in our apartment anyway... We learned the chords and the lyrics (which was pretty easy because we've heard all these songs hundreds of times), and we played 'em."

via MOKB: Mother & Child Reunion (Paul Simon)
via I Pick My Nose Blog: Pull Up The Roots (Talking Heads)
via Spinner: Temptation Inside Your Head (Velvet Underground)

Covers coming in the full batch next week will include songs by Fleetwood Mac, Randy Newman, and more. Check the Morning Benders blog for details. And rock on with the free summer covers music.
