Tonight in Music: Morning Teleportation, Grandparents, & The We Shared Milk

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Mon, Dec 5, 2011 at 1:28 PM


(Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) A trio of great local bands livens up your Monday night, headlined by the ever-wiggling, sparkly psych of Morning Teleportation, who famously signed to Isaac Brock's label as unknowns but have since proved themselves with ebullient live shows and a record—this year's Expanding Anyway—that remains a fun, tantalizing listen. To make matters better, Grandparents, whose explosive, dense garage rock moves forward at a million miles a minute, are on the bill, as are the We Shared Milk, who've just dropped their second EP, SUH, and remain in firm command of a sound that has elements of hazed-out '70s and slack-jawed '90s, but sounds entirely up to date. If there was a single show for taking the temperature of Portland's rock scene, it's this one. NED LANNAMANN
