SF's The Morning Bender's
have a Big Echo
coming our way. In honor of their appreciation for the engaging, ever crowded wall-of-sound, they channeled Phil Spector in their recent Yours Truly
session. If you've ever been in a recording class, you know the story; Spector's angle was to cram as many musicians as possible into the studio to create a fluffy atmosphere of noise. The Benders use this technique well for their recreation of "Excuses", the dreamy first track of their new album, enlisting the aid of every musician they know in San Fran. The army of guitars, stick clickers, and ba-da singers call themselves The Big Echo Orchestra.
