Check Out: The Morning Benders "Excuses"

The Morning Benders decided to grab a bunch of their San Francisco friends, plop them all in a studio and record a massive, heart-throbbing song called "Excuses", the first song on their upcoming album "Big Echo". There are violins, multiple guitars, drums and a slew of friends just singing. You will probably recognize some notable faces among the group like Chris Owens of Girls and John Vanderslice. Nearly every time I watch this video I get chills. Hearing Christopher Chu's vocals backed by swaying friends singing along instills a sense of good time and peace. Check it out. Hope you guys like it.

wow I LOVE it!! I saw the Morning Benders open up for Grizzy Bear and they were really good! Such a great idea too just packing all those musicians into one room haha. I'm looking forward to their new album. Thanks so much for finding and sharing this video!
