A.V. Club: “Excuses” with the Echo Chamber Orchestra

Let me preface this (ever-so-quick) post by saying that this particular song is one I’ve loved since it’s initial release. I’m not two years behind on the gravy train or anything that embarrassing, though I am just now stumbling upon this particular recording of it. The Morning Benders are one of my favorite bands out there right now, and this orchestral, Spector-esque Wall of Sound technique is really jiving with this track. It doesn’t hurt the band’s credibility that Girls frontman Christopher Owens makes an appearance. That makes me smile.

Also, Chris Chu’s explanation of the song’s meaning as the credits roll is positively adorable.

Happy watchin’ – hope you like this as much as I do.
