Telekinesis is both a band and a person. Now a grizzled and wizened 26-year-old, Michael Benjamin Lerner has recorded his third album, Dormarion. The record is, in ways both practical and profound, the sound of a man figuring out exactly who he is. Also, it’s a total fucking hoot.
Lerner originally intended to record the album completely on his own. Instead, he made the record in two weeks with Spoon drummer Jim Eno at Public Hi-Fi, his Austin, TX, studio. On Dormarion Lane, to be specific. “It’s a beautiful-sounding word, and if you Google it, nothing but this one tiny street comes up,” says Lerner. “No origin, no description. I can’t tell you what the word means. It’s like something from Lost.”
