Telekinesis is Michael Benjamin Lerner. He hails from Seattle and likes "kranse kake and pistachio nuts and Scandinavian cheese cutters and raccoons" apparently.
Telekinesis, on stage, drafts in the assistance of Chris Staples (guitar), David Broecker (electric, acoustic & bass guitar), and Jonie Broecker (bass guitar & keyboards) joining him on tour. They all live in Seattle, WA. Telekinesis!, the debut album, was produced, engineered, and mixed by Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, Tegan & Sara). Walla and Lerner tracked and mixed each of its songs to analog tape in a single day before moving on to the next song, with the ambitious goal of never over-thinking or sabotaging the spontaneous enthusiasm of the music.
