Telekinesis is both a band and a person. Michael Benjamin Lerner, now a wizened 26-year-old, wrote the 12 songs that comprise Dormarion in early 2012-half at his home in West Seattle and half at his family’s house in the San Juan Islands-with the original intention of recording the album completely on his own. Instead, he road-tripped over the summer and made the record in two weeks with Spoon drummer Jim Eno in his Austin, TX studio, Public Hi-Fi. On Dormarion Lane, to be specific. When you see Telekinesis perform this year, Lerner will be backed by Erik Walters of The Globes on guitar, Say Hi’s Eric Elbogen on bass, and Rebecca Cole of Wild Flag and The Minders on keyboards.
