The Morning Benders – Big Echo, the Seven Fields of Aphelion – Periphery

Things are moving (literally and figuratively) and seeing how it’s been awhile since my last post, I’ve decided to post two albums that have been getting lots of play around here.

I’m sure at this point the Morning Benders need no introduction–Big Echo (an apt title if I’ve ever heard one) is making waves and has without a doubt become a breakthrough release for the band (and not without good reason.)

On the other hand, the Seven Fields of Aphelion’s debut release “Periphery” is for unknown reasons being completely overlooked (1,500 listeners on last.fm compared to Black Moth Super Rainbow’s 150,000?!) The Seven Fields of Aphelion has presented to us a work of unwavering beauty and although it’s a noticeable departure from the sunny synth-laden, beat-driven sounds of Black Moth Super Rainbow, I find myself enjoying this album more than any album by the latter.
