The folks over at Yours Truly may have outdone themselves on this one. They didn’t just record a live rendition of a new song from a Bay Area band; they recorded a stellar session with the Morning Benders that also happens to feature a veritable hodgepodge of other local musicians. And because that can’t be enough: the whole thing is actually a bit of a tribute to one Phil Spector.
Recorded at Different Fur Studios, this video for “Excuses” allows for keen eyes to spot other Bay Area heavy-hitters: John Vanderslice, Golden Gram (Rogue Wave, Port O’Brien), Christopher Owens (Girls), and oh wait, is that the Mumlers? AndÂ Blue Rabbit? Who else is in there, bringing this new song from Big Echo to life?
