The Morning Benders, Neurolux, Oct. 22 

At the start of The Morning Benders' viral video hit "Excuses," lead singer Chris Chu explains the inspiration behind the song's recording process:

"When I was learning about recording, I remember this story about Phil Spector ... how he would just pile in 50 people into the studio, multiple drummers, multiple guitars and just blow it out ... I just thought it would be really cool to do that with all our friends from San Francisco," says Chu.

Crammed into a warm sepia-toned recording studio--fiddle bows grazing guitar strings dodging gauze-covered drum mallets--The Morning Benders and dozens of their pals built a multi-layered wall of sound. Backed by the sweet lilt of violin and the clack of drums, Chu belts out: "You tried to taste me / and I taped my tongue / to the southern tip of your body."

Check out "Excuses," from the band's second full-length album, live at Neurolux on Friday, Oct. 22.
