If there’s one album I’ve been turning to for repeat play in 2009, it’s the debut from Telekinesis (aka Michael Benjaman Lerner), appropriately titled Telekinesis!
The record, produced by Death Cab for Cutie’s Chris Walla, is all quick and catchy power-pop but then ends with the pretty and somewhat fragile I Saw Lightning, a song that anyone would be wise to include for a sensitive/sentimental interlude on a homemade mix tape. (Stream the tune here.)
But one of the catchiest tracks is the energetic Tokyo. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more enjoyable two minutes, 54 seconds. Video is below.
Catch Telekinesis open for Margot & the Nuclear So and Sos on May 20 at Rhythm Room in Phoenix. Tickets are 10 bucks.
One thought on “Telekinesis: Tokyo (video)”
I’m digging the Telekinesis album also. It’s hard to beat a solid power-pop album in the spring/summer months. And I’m definitely looking forward to catching the tour when it comes to Salt Lake in a couple weeks…Margot puts on a great show as it is so the pairing with Telekinesis is gravy, you know?
