NPR recently featured one of our favorite new bands this year, Telekinesis performing a Tiny Desk Concert. The four song performance features a stripped down version of the Telekinesis experience, and it features the previously unreleased song “Plankton”!
“It’s a little late in the year to be chasing down a perfect summer soundtrack, but Telekinesis’ recent self-titled debut — okay, technically, it’s called Telekinesis! — fits the bill. The disc finds the band concocting a perfect mix of guitar-driven crunch and good-natured fizziness, with hooky effervescence that makes it almost ridiculously easy to like.”
Golly Michael Benjamin Lerner’s band Telekinesis is so darn good. The band is a big favorite amongst the Team Clermonsters. The video for “Tokyo” is like a checklist of some of my favorite things in the world: Stop-Motion Animation, Sushi, Devo Costumes, Weird Asian Food… I could watch this all day long.
and make sure to catch the band on tour!
