The Morning Benders’ stellar “Excuses,” one of our favorite songs of 2010, has been completely reworked on the new Golden Filter remix, adding an enormous supply of bass, distortion and spaced-outness. The new remix includes children’s voices merged with off beat drum patterns and a prominent use of echo and reverberation manipulating Chris Chu’s vocals. There are several electronic solos where there is a direct infusion of hip hop and dirty house, while new guitar melodies come to life, thus entirely transforming it from the 60’s-like original. The ambiance present is sinister, at times frightening, but always enticing, giving this standout from Big Echo a real dance-friendly persuasion.
