Morning Teleportation's "Expanding Anyway" album review

Morning Teleportation’s album “Expanding Anyway”, which was produced by Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse, was released on March 8, 2011. The album opens with “Boom Puma” which starts with a little background yelling and then overpowered by a fuzzed out guitar, welcoming you to the complexity you are about to hear. Each song changes so many times but still seems to all hold together, the most extreme in this case is the song “Whole Hearted Drifting Sense of Inertia”, which clocks in at a little over 9 minutes. The song starts with a mysterious feeling of synths only to be overtaken by the chorus, a swirling of guitar arpeggios, next the song moves into a dancey drum beat and trumpets and then moves back into the chorus. After a synth breakdown, the song moves to an upbeat guitar and even an attempt at rapping by Tiger Merritt, the vocalist for the group. Next, the song is overtaken by shredding guitars, a trumpet, the dancey drum beat from earlier and eventually an electric piano.  The only exceptions to the compound song clause the album seems to have are “Daydream Electric Storm” and “Coldweather Sunshine” which are both simple, stripped down songs, containing only acoustic guitar and vocals with just the right amount of sound effects for a little extra ambience. The final song, “Treble Chair” ends with a harmony of the line “out of this world” being repeated, which perfectly sums up this album. I would rate this album 10/10, it is perfect.
