California baroque pop band POP ETC
(formerly known as the Morning Benders) will be releasing their first album under their new name 6/12. They changed their name to POP ETC because "bender" has negative connotations with British audiences as a slur against homosexuals. They also released a mixtape of free music as part of their name change which you can download here
. They've got a new, very minimalist video of a close-up of lead singer Chris Chu singing "Live It Up." It's more electro-pop than baroque but it's a good song and we're excited for their forthcomiong self-titled album.
