    Brooklyn-based band POP ETC is made up of Christopher Chu, Jonathan Chu, and Julian Harmon -- formerly known as The Morning Benders. The group changed their name in respect of the LGBT community after discovering its derogatory meaning in other areas of the world, but the new moniker seems to have been applied to their sound as well. Very little of The Morning Benders is heard on this new album. You would never guess that POP ETC is a reincarnation of the lo-fi, harmonic music makers that played "Excuses" on the album Big Echo . Bands don't completely change their image and sound often and POP ETC has taken their opportunity to explore pop (etc.) music.
