Michael Benjamin Lerner, aka Telekinesis, is set to release his third album, Dormarion, on April 2 via Merge. Lerner recorded with Spoon drummer Jim Eno at Eno’s Public Hi-Fi studio in Austin, TX, on Dormarion Lane, and the results are said to be very “unlike” what we’ve come to expect from the Seattle-spawned artist.
 
While a tracklisting for the album has yet to be seen, the keyboard-driven single “Ghosts And Creatures” most certainly marks a departure from Lerner’s power-pop compendium.
 

 
Telekinesis will be crossing the country this spring, 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. Tour dates below.
