Song of the Day – Tuesday 3/9/2010 The Morning Benders March 9, 2010

Berkeley/San Francisco quartet, The Morning Benders have recently signed to Rough Trade Records and their latest album Big Echo drops today.  The band has toured with the likes of Grizzly Bear, MGMT, Beach House, Ra Ra Riot, Yo La Tengo, and Death Cab for Cutie.  In the video, lead singer, Chris Chu explains why he brought in his friends and fellow musicians and The Echo Chamber Orchestra in to record a live version of their song “Excuses.”  Of course like everything in life, the song’s about love…and you’re sure to fall in love with The Morning Benders from first listen of the Etta James-esque string section…
