I’ve been interested in The Morning Benders ever since I heard the gigantic “Excuses”. Hearing the best song first is always tricky to get past. It’s like smoking crack for the first time and forever chasing that high. Um. Not that I know. Not that I am a raging crackhead who blogs on the side to support my habit. Not that I am decaying mentally and physically as I sit here in the crackhouse blogging from a stolen computer, face covered in feces, drooling on the keyboard as I type this pretty post for you, with a heart full of self-hatred and regret. Just kidding, seriously I’m not a crackhead (yes I am).

“Excuses” is still the standout song from The Morning Benders, but they’ve got an arsenal of other good material that has kept my attention. As “Excuses” gets played to the point of becoming tired to me (yes, that happens with all songs, even if the tiredness only lasts for a while) songs like “Cold War” are sneaking up to steal that coveted title of Confusion’s Favorite Morning Benders Song.

The Morning Benders have some of the best melodies in the indie rock game right now. Their album Big Echo is full of beautiful, timeless songs. Buy it here. Check out this remix, and the original. Thanks to The Music Ninja.
