Morning Benders Honor Phil Spector, Amaze World

To put it simply, this video is amazing. It's Bon-Iver-singing-a-cappella-in-an-empty-Paris-hallway amazing. I wasn't a fan of The Morning Benders before watching this video, yet now suddenly they're my favorite band. Filmed by the talented crew at Yours Truly, the video features the Benders channeling Phil Spector for their new song "Excuses." The infamous "wall of sound" comes courtesy of the Big Echo Orchestra—a crew of San Francisco-area musician friends that includes the Girls' Christopher Owens and John Vanderslice. The forthcoming full-length Big Echo will be out March 9th. Until then, anticipation will ensue.
