mp3: The Morning Benders | "Excuses"

The Morning Benders just posted up the album version of "Excuses" -- the opening track from their forthcoming Chris Taylor co-produced full-length Big Echo -- for free download on their website. Living up to the glorious instant classic live version is a tall order, but the band delivers in the form of this warm, unabashedly romantic, classic-'60s-pop-informed throwback love song (complete with gorgeous "At Last"-esque strings):

i hope during their tour they call up the audience to be their orchestra, i'm very happy that this song is almost as good as that live version

Absolutely unbelievable. After hearing the live version, I was literally counting the minutes until the studio version dropped, and it didn't disappoint. I can't wait for BIG ECHO!
