Live Telekinesis video from NPR and XX Merge

Telekinesis performed stripped-down shows recently for NPR Music on tour and for Converse at XX Merge, and video for both are now available for your viewing pleasure.

Today on Converse.com, watch Telekinesis' Michael Benjamin Lerner and Nada Surf's Matthew Caws playing "Tokyo" from Telekinesis!

The Telekinesis video is the third in a series showcasing six Merge bands performing stripped-down sets somewhat spontaneously in various locations during the festival. Visit Converse.com to watch all of the videos in this series.

Also, watch and listen Telekinesis' Tiny Desk performance now at NPR.org/music. Michael and Chris kicked the set off with "Plankton," from the "Coast of Carolina" tour EP (now available in the Merge store), NPR's Stephen Thompson describes the set, "Without the insistent crunch of electric guitars or drums — Lerner plays the latter himself when not performing acoustic sets at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen — the band's performance radiates sweetly awkward warmth."

Order Telekinesis! on CD and digital download in the Merge store.
