Music: Morning Teleportation

A lot of bands claim to be Psychedelic and then just crank up the reverb and write thinly veiled songs about getting high and transcendentally pondering mystically spiritual subject matter. Morning Teleportation doesn’t work that close to the surface.

A lot of bands claim to be Psychedelic and then just crank up the reverb and write thinly veiled songs about getting high and transcendentally pondering mystically spiritual subject matter. Morning Teleportation doesn’t work that close to the surface.

The Bowling Green, Ky., quartet offers up a sonic universe that approximates the sound of acid-taking itself, vibrating at a hallucinatory frequency that astrally projects through a cosmic amplifier with swirling abandon, altered intensity and unbridled joy.

The band coalesced a decade ago when Chicago vocalist/guitarist Tiger Merritt began his college studies at Western Kentucky University and met keyboardist Travis Goodwin, bassist Paul Wilkerson and drummer Tres Coker, who each called BG their hometown. Read more about the band in this week's Sound Advice.
