Telekinesis – Bright Power Pop From Drummer Michael Benjamin Lerner

August 7, 2013 - Telekinesis’ Michael Benjamin Lerner sings from behind the drum set when the band plays live, but on the albums he plays almost all the instruments.

The Seattle native worked on his well-received first album in 2009 with Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walla and recorded his new one Dormarion with Jim Eno the drummer from Spoon. He tells us today that ironically with two drummers involved somehow the two ended up using a drum machine. Michael’s natural ebullience comes out in our interview as much as it does in Telekinesis’ music.
