Listen: Telekinesis - “Sleep In”

Ad Infinitum Due Out September 18 via Merge

Under the Radar favorite Telekinesis (the project of Seattle-based singer/songwriter/drummer Michael Benjamin Lerner) previously announced his fourth album, Ad Infinitum, which is due out on September 18 via longtime label Merge. We’ve already heard its single, “In a Future World,” and seen a trailer for the album. Now Lerner has shared another song from the record, “Sleep In,” via NPR’s All Songs Considered. It’s another retro-futuristic pop song from the album and features a Speak & Spell.

Ad Infinitum doesn’t completely abandon the power-pop vibe of Telekinesis’ first three albums, but it’s certainly inspired by the kind of 1980s electro-pop and New Wave you might find on a classic John Hughes soundtrack. The album was recorded in Lerner’s basement home studio and Lerner embraced synthesizers and drum machines for a fresh take on Telekinesis’ sound. He’s written a long piece over at Medium on recording the album and setting up his home studio.

Below check out “Sleep In,” followed by Telekinesis’ upcoming tour dates with Say Hi and the video for “In a Future World.”

Also, read our recent 2014 Artist Survey interview with Telekinesis or Lerner’s My Favorite Thing post on Flin Flon’s A-Ok or our Halloween 2013 Questionnaire with Lerner or the guest post he wrote on the film The Sandlot.
