Telekinesis-Dormarion

Sugar-Sweet and Upbeat

Michael Benjamin Lerner, otherwise known as the one-man band Telekinesis, emerged from the rainy Seattle landscape in 2009 with Telekinesis!, an album full of affable power-pop produced by fellow northwestern indie rocker Chris Walla, of Death Cab for Cutie fame. Lerner followed Telekinesis! with 2011’s 12 Desperate Straight Lines, another record praised for its pop sensibilities.

In Pursuit of Happiness

The latest release from Washington’s Death Cab for Cutie is markedly different from the band’s older material. It’s almost…happy.
