Sound Of A Handshake is going to release the new Ep by Telekinesis, ‘Dirty Thing’, which is primarily dirty if it comes to the sound: As an hommage to the culture of Low Fidelity, Michael Lerner recorded this EP all alone with the microphone of his Macbook and “insane amounts of compression”. Significantly in this context: A few years ago Michael passed The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts in Liverpool, where Paul McCartney himself has an eye on his student’s skillz in recording and audio engineering. Thereby the record’s raw sound fits perfectly to it’s five songs: candid, straightforward and always highly emotional: This is exactly the kind of rock n roll-record, that have become rare these days: no needless knick knack – just a bunch of incredibly catchy two-minute-tunes. While two of them are brandnew, you’ll already know the other three: ‘Calling All Doctors’ (because it was already part of the debut album – though in another version), ‘Meaningless’ (because it was originally played by The Magnetic Fields) and ‘The Drawback’ (because it was written by Joy Division or rather Warsaw).
Before there will be a CD- and a Vinyl-edition (on 10inch) at the beginning of October, ‘Dirty Thing’ will be released digital today, on August, 31st, and is available from Itunes! Please don’t miss the brandnew video! The same day Telekinesis will finally hit the road again. And Michael has a new band featuring Jason Narducy on bass (Robert Pollard, Verbow) and Cody Votolato on guitar (Jaguar Love, The Blood Brothers)! Telekinesis will play shows with Superchunk, Teenage Fanclub and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yetsin in the US and Canada. Later this year, there will be shows all over Europe, too! Please see below for details!
