the morning benders – japan echo
The Morning Benders have released a new EP featuring remixes from Star Slinger, Twin Sister, Wild Nothing, and more, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Japan Society's Earthquake Relief Fund. The Benders' Chris Chu says:
"Last week we were scheduled to go to Tokyo to play our first show ever in Japan. It was going to be a very special trip for us, and for me in particular. I had always dreamt of going back to Japan to play music. Not many people know this, but I was actually born in Japan, and although I only lived there for a couple of years, I've always had a deep love for the country and its people. I cannot express how sad and helpless I've felt reading about everything that is happening there right now, and even though we couldn't be there, we wanted to do everything we could to help. We love you Japan."
