Telekinesis is the recording alias of one man, Michael Benjamin Lerner, who creates some very catchy indie-pop tunes. He will release his sophomore album 12 Desperate Straight Lines on February 11th 2011 via Merge Records. It was recorded in Portland, Oregon with Death Cab For Cutie‘s Chris Walla who also produced the album. You can grab the first single “Car Crash” above.
