This was their return visit to Morning Becomes Eclectic and MBE host Jason Bentley mentioned that we are watching them grow up before our eyes. It certainly feels that way.
When they were here in 2011, we compared them …

by Jeremiah Garcia

MGMT’s latest release, their 3rd full length, was a self-titled album.
That is always a meaningful gesture for a band. But just what it means to Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser is anyone’s guess because trying to get a straight answer out of them is near impossible.
Equal parts playful, sarcastic, and genuinely oddball, the duo seem like unlikely rockstars who are still coping with their …

Dan Croll by Larry Hirshowitz

This week’s installment of We’ve Got It Covered is a tiny bit of a stretch since it’s more of a re-working or re-imagining of a song than a straight cover.
Still though, on his debut visit to Morning Becomes Eclectic, the U.K. artist recounted the story of how he came to find “Hello My Baby” and actually work with the legendary African a capella group …

DeVotchKa by Larry Hirshowitz

Released in 1970 as a single, “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” was Neil Young’s first top 40 song and was included in the iconic third album in Young’s catalog, “After The Gold Rush”.
Some stories differentiate a bit on the genesis of the song, but the most romantic is that it was written for Graham Nash after his split with Joni Mitchell.
It’s one of …

nick

The Seeds‘ single “Pushin’ Too Hard“ was released in 1965 and although it didn’t see any time in the Billboard charts right away, it climbed to number 35 when it was re-released later that year.
I guess you could say “Pushin’ Too Hard” was a euphemism about timing.
The Seeds were Southern California through and through, ushering a new era of psych-rock and experimenting with sounds …
