"If you don't like Telekinesis, your ears don't work." --SPIN.COM

“Telekinesis: The smartest, catchiest, rockin'est pop of the last decade. Every time a cut comes up from this Seattle-based band I literally shake my head and ask the empty room, or train full of commuters, "Why isn't this the biggest band in the world?!" Blank stares.” ... Read more in Amazon's Telekinesis Store

Editorial Reviews

Telekinesis is Michael Benjamin Lerner. Influenced by both the carefully constructed timeless pop of the 60s and 70s, and the nonchalance and brevity of classic indie rock. Recorded with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists, Tegan And Sara).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut! July 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Picking up the heir to the power pop mantle after Weezer went wrong, the debut album by Telekinesis proves that power pop is not dead and that's great news for fans of the genre and for fans of quality indie rock. Telekinesis is the project of Michael Benjamin Lerner who wrote and played nearly all of the instruments on the album. Influenced by the timeless pop songs of the `60's and `70's, producer Chris Walla and Lerner recorded and mixed most of the songs in a single day and this style of production suits because it creates the feeling of urgency these songs thrive on.

"Rust" opens the album with some distortion and acoustic guitars and a melancholy vibe that is quickly erased by the effervescent "Coast of Carolina." The sunny melodies of The Beach Boys are recalled in "Tokyo." "Awkward Kisser" sounds like a lament written in the `50's, but is timelessly transferred. "Foreign Room" and "Look to the East" both benefit from a retro quiet to loud dynamic. On "Telekinesis!" Lerner has crafted a smart album full of songs that sound lived in and familiar. "Telekinesis!" is a concise album of songs for the underdog who has fortunately found a new champion in Telekinesis

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and Consistent January 9, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Plain and simple, but that's not a bad thing. I agree with the other reviewers. The music is solid and the tracks all share a consistent quality of well crafted music. I really recommend them if you're a fan of Weezer or Kings of Leon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Telekinesis! April 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing CD from an up and coming band. I've only heard of them recently, but I am definitely hooked. They could be described as having a death cab for cutie/the shins vibe. I will probably buy their album and I've already looked to when they are coming to perform.
