The Morning Benders

Yours Truly Presents: The Morning Benders "Excuses" from Yours Truly on Vimeo.

The Morning Benders are from SF, USA. Initially started as a solo project by singer song-writer Chris Chu The Morning Benders is now a quartet. 2010 saw them release second album 'Big Echo' co-produced by Grizzly Bear's Christopher Taylor and Chu.

The above video shows Chu recording song 'Excuses' using Phil Spector's technique the 'Wall of Sound'; a process whereby a mass number of musicians (playing the same instruments) play at the same time thus creating a 'Wall of Sound'.

It creates something pretty special. Take a listen.

The Morning Benders are on tour now and they'll be playing at London's Borderline on 30 Sep!

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.
