Morning Teleportation

Ever heard of a little band called Morning Teleportation? No? Well you should have. Why? Because they're quickly emerging onto the indie rock scene, having just wrapped up a US tour with everyone's favorite, lo-fi indie, rock outfit, Modest Mouse and before that, served as supporting act to new fan favorite Cage The Elephant.

Morning Teleportation, based out of Portland, Oregon, are a five piece band, with your generic drums, guitar, bass...and what was that? Squirrel calls, crock pots, and pans and banjos? You got that right. Morning Teleportations sound is a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, and whole lot of psychedelic.

Songs listed on their MySpace page are limited...to three. "Just A Figment" is exactly that, a figment of your imagination. Starts out like a sweet indie rock melody and erupts into a beautiful cacophony in the last minute. It will blow your mind, that is, if your mind isn't blown already.

I think we'll be hearing a lot more of Morning Teleportations in the near future, as Modest Mouse frontman, Isaac Brock, liked them so much, he decided to back them, not only by bringing them on tour, but signing them to his record label, Glacial Pace Recordings AND producing the bands' first full length album, with no record release date in sight. Unfortunately.

Morning Teleportation are finishing up a US tour with dates ending in their (current) hometown of Portland, Oregon.

If you have a chance to go see them, please do. And report back.
