Telekinesis released their sophomore album 12 Desperate Straight Lines on Tuesday, and the band will be celebrating release week with a stop at KEXP Seattle today, February 16! Listen to the band play live at 12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern on 90.3 FM in the Seattle area, or online at KEXP.org!
NPR Music's Robin Hilton describes Telekinesis' new edgier sound, "The group's only permanent member, Michael Benjamin Lerner, writes songs that exude loneliness, heartache and the dizzying grief of dysfunctional relationships. But his agony is packaged in tightly wound, unabashedly upbeat pop songs. Misery has never sounded so worthy of company."
12 Desperate Straight Lines is available on CD and LP in the Merge store and your local record store, and you can find Telekinesis on Twitter and Facebook.
