One would think The Morning Benders have an upcoming album coming out the way we’re talking so much about them these days. The band just released a remix EP, Japan Echo, the proceeds of which are all being donated to the Japan Relief fund and frontman Chris Chu just uploaded a previously unreleased “Oh Annie” which was left off of last year’s formidable Big Echo.

The frontman still has more to share with us, having just premiered an alternative version of the title track of their 2009 EP, Grain Of Salt. The new version has more in common with Big Echo’s breezy demeanor and lighthearted instrumentation, with two girls speaking in French that brings Beirut’s “Nantes” to mind. Hear “Grain Of Salt (Big Echo Version)” below:
