Telekinesis – Dirty Things

Telekinesis is the moniker for Seattle based indie musician Michael Benjamin Lerner, a man who had always been behind a drum kit until Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walladrummer heard some of his infectious electro indie pop on myspace. Walladrummer emailed Michael to compliment him on his songwriting and later, running into him backstage somewhere, asked Michael if he wanted to make a record. “Uh.. Okay. That’d be fun,” he says. They went on to produce a very buzzed about debut album and is now releasing his second this spring called 12 Desperate Straight Lines. He had previously toured alone for years but this time around he has backup in the form of bassist Jason Narducy  and guitarist Cody Votolato. They’re currently touring the States and if you get the chance, do yourself a favour and check them out because I hear they play a mean live show!
