Steeped in the pop that would guide Toad the Wet Sprocket to success, Bend by The Origin expand the sound with soul, country and psychedelia

Another week, another requested review from one of our listeners. This week we’re checking out The Origin, and their second and final release Bend from 1992. Steeped in the pleasant pop that would guide Toad the Wet Sprocket to success, The Origin expand on that sound with touches of soul, psychedelia and country. This album didn’t make much of dent beyond college radio and we try to figure out why.
