Every now and then, there comes along an album that is so ridiculously good that you just want to play it over and over so that it doesn't get out of your head. Such was my experience with the Morning Benders album Big Echo. The album's leading track "excuses" is a retro step back in time and its genius how the instrumentation builds up throughout the song. And because that can't be enough, the whole thing is actually a big tribute to the one and only Phil Spector.
In honor of a pre-murderous Phil Spector, The Morning Benders perform their song "Excuses" with a choir of their friends. It's just that their friends all happen to be a who's who of the San Fran music scene. Together they call themselves the' Big Echo Orchestra'. Basically your ears will be in heaven for the next six minutes. Enjoy!
