Telekinesis @ Merge Records party, The Parish, SXSW 2009 Day 4, Sat March 21st.

Telekinesis @ The Parish, SXSW 2009 by

mp3: Telekinesis – Coast Of Carolina

Telekinesis from Seattle, Washington was one of the word of mouth successes of SXSW 2009. Having been recommended them by a few people independently, I finally caught up with them on the last day. Telekinesis on record is one man band Michael Benjamin Lerner. As talented as he is, only having two arms means that live he has to settle for performing drums and lead vocals from his kit at stage front. What a slacker! So on stage Michael is joined by a couple of guitarists and a keyboard player along for the ride. It’s big hearted, high tempo power pop and it sure is a lot of fun. They’ve signed to Merge Records and their debut album is due out in the U.S. in April and features Chris Walla of Death Cab For Cutie. Let’s hope it gets a UK release.

For Fans Of: The Shins, Of Montreal, Ra Ra Riot, Death Cab For Cutie.
