mp3: The Morning Benders - "Excuses"

Just the other day we posted an awesome video from San Francisco band The Morning Benders.  The video shot for the website Yours Truly featured The Morning Benders and a small army of the bands friends and fellow San Francisco musicians performing the song "Excuses."  The band was attempting to recreate a Phil Spector-ish wall of sound type experience with the performance.  Mission accomplished, sirs.

The song "Excuses" comes of The Morning Benders forthcoming album Big Echo which is out March 9th on Rough Trade Records.  The band is giving away a free mp3 of the song "Excuses" on their website.  Surprisingly, given how big the sound comes across in the video we posted I think I actually like the album version slightly better.

Personally, I love this song and I'm hoping that the rest of the album is just as good.  Take a listen to the song down below and leave us a comment with what you think.
