Telekinesis, Mount Moriah

Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[POWER POP] Michael Benjamin Lerner, the man behind Seattle’s Telekinesis, is one of those rare performers who sings lead vocals from behind a drum kit. He also plays most of the instruments on his records. You wouldn’t guess it, though, considering the songs brim with the energy of a full group. With three full-length albums and a road band that joins him on tour, the 26-year-old mainly plays power pop centered on strong electric guitar riffs and boyish vocals. But his recently released third album, Dormarion—produced by Spoon drummer Jim Eno—introduces the most varied and expansive Telekinesis record yet. From waltzing acoustic guitar and washy synth-pop to distorted rock tracks, the new songs bring increased layers of depth and exploration to Lerner’s work.
