Morning Teleportation – “Calm Is Intention Devouring Its Frailty”

Morning Teleportation’s latest single, “Calm Is Intention Devouring Its Frailty,” offers a smorgasbord of different sounds and identities. It’s not surprising, though, as their new record, Salivating for Symbiosis, is a collaboration between duo Tiger Merritt and Travis Goodwin and their close friends from working and touring: Joseph Jones, Alex Lindsey, Paul Wilkerson, Cage The Elephant’s Daniel Tichenor, Nick Bockrath, Matthan Minster, Death Cab For Cutie’s David Depper, and Mimicking Birds’ Aaron Hanson. The song does a quick change on you several times throughout its quick runtime, transforming from light indie pop to heavy space psych and back again. A little Beck, a little new school OK GO, the Kentucky band’s shifts are sudden but welcome. At its closing, the track features a glitchy piano breakdown that melts into a warped and chilling finish.
