Telekinesis presents the Parallel Seismic Conspiracies EP – available today from finer digital retailers, the Merge store and from the band in actual, physical format on their co-headline tour starting today in St. Louis with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.
You can also pre-order the limited-edition CD version in the Merge store now!
The new release and tour are sure to get everyone all warmed up for Telekinesis’ 2011 full-length follow-up to the acclaimed debut Telekinesis! – the EP contains a full-band version of the first album’s “Calling All Doctors,” plus covers of Guided By Voices’ “Game of Pricks” and “The Drawback” (borrowed from the proto-Joy Division project Warsaw) and a dazzling new Michael Benjamin Lerner treat called “Dirty Thing” that just could be the summer hit you've been waiting for!
Watch the new and sprightly video for “Dirty Thing” now!
To complement the new Parallel Seismic Conspiracies EP (and maybe even to begin previewing material that will appear on the upcoming full-length), a new incarnation of the Telekinesis band will be on tour starting today and finishing up on October 19 in LA at the Music Box with Superchunk. Featuring Jason Narducy (Robert Pollard band, Verbow) on bass and Cody Votolato (Jaguar Love, The Blood Brothers) on guitar, the new line-up will be delivering energy and fun nightly.
