Tinseling Thursday VIII

Today we got Telekinesis for our weekly dose of tinsels.
Telekinesis is Michael Benjamin Lerner, an indie rocker based out of Seattle who is currently signed to Merge Records. The band was signed to Merge Records in early 2009, and shortly afterward released the eponymously named debut album Telekinesis! The album was produced, mixed, and engineered with the help of Chris Walla (guitarist for Death Cab For Cutie), who also played on most tracks. They recorded one song per day on analog tape. Last month they released their third album called "Dormarion" and it's instant summer! First I want you to see the video of this albums first single "Ghostst and Creatures"
Lerner originally intended to record the album completely on his own. Instead, he made the record in two weeks with Spoon drummer Jim Eno in his Austin, TX studio, Public Hi-Fi. On Dormarion Lane, to be specific. “It’s a beautiful-sounding word, and if you Google it, nothing but this one tiny street comes up,” says Lerner. “No origin, no description. I can’t tell you what the word means. It’s like something from Lost.” Here's the more uptempo song and second track from the album "Empathic People" I like his voice, sometimes gritty, sometimes crystal clear. He's made some beautiful ballads too. Listen for example to the song Symphony Symphony by Telekinesis on Grooveshark And we end with Island#4, a song with some Death Cab influences, enjoy.
