Telekinesis Announces “12 Desperate Straight Lines”

Out February 15th via Merge

Nov 10, 2010 Telekinesis Bookmark and Share

Inspired by a broken heart, wrecked van, and Berlin, Telekinesis’ Michael Benjamin Lerner recorded the follow-up to debut album Telekinesis! under duress. The result, 12 Desperate Straight Lines (out February 15th via Merge), is a bass-driven ode to what the press release calls, “heartache, anger, and even a little hopefulness.”

Check out the album art above, and then head below for a tracklisting, tour dates, and download of first single, “Car Crash.”
