Turkey Day Treat: The Morning Benders' Excuses (The Golden Filter Remix)'
Behind the buzz: Berkeleyites transplanted to the no-neck wilds of Brooklyn, The Morning Benders scored in '08 with an impressive debut full-length Talking Through Tin Cans, went on to tour with the flashpan likes of Ra Ra Riot and Death Cab for Cutie, and lent this very tune (the original version) to an ad for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Among these emoluments of indie-rock stardom, they can now add having this highlight off the February album Big Echo album given a cosmos-huffing makeover by none other than NYC electronic duo The Golden Filter.
Today's weed: A limburger-rank chunk of Fire OG.
The part where you know you're high: The eerie "We'll still be best friends" chant going up in a brief Sgt. Pepper's-force maelstrom.
The part where you wish you were higher: Just after, when the giggling starts.
