Telekinesis releases video for

Telekinesis released a new video for "Ghosts and Creatures," the first single from their forthcoming new album Dormarion today via The A.V. Club.

Directed by Arman Bohn, The A.V. Club describes the video, "'Ghosts And Creatures' finds frontman Michael Lerner crushing hard on a triangle-faced lady trapped in a computer, fighting a bearded bad guy, and learning how to solder. It might sound weird, but it’s all in the name of love."

Watch the video for "Ghosts and Creatures" now at The A.V. Club

On a recent trip to NYC, Michael Benjamin Lerner stopped by the SPIN offices to play acoustic versions of two songs from Dormarion as well as a Teenage Fanclub cover. He also talked about a few of his "favorite things." Read & watch now at Spin.com
