Song of the Week: Morning Benders offer Excuses

Morning Benders are this month’s big buzz band with good reason. A couple of excellent pre-release tracks – including the surf doo-wop single “Excuses” — a don’t-miss, cameo-filled promo video (see below), and A-list indie-band networking (including opening slots and production help from Grizzly Bear and Death Cab For Cutie) are building let’s-see-what-they’re-all-about expectation for this California college quartet’s second album Big Echo.
