Michael Benjamin Lerner, the magical young sage who is the mind behind Telekinesis, thought he had reached the end of his extension cord going into recording his fourth full-length album. After recording each album quickly with exceptionally talented producers, he thought he had finally dug to the bottom of the tried and true Telekinesis sound. That all changed when he fell in love.

With the synthesizer. 

From the first pulsating beat to the blissful electronic beeps throughout, Ad Infinitum is the sound of reinvention and determination. It’s a departure from the bubble-yum pop tunes of his previous releases, but it still holds the core of what makes Telekinesis tunes so easy to love: it’s personal. It’s hard to not listen to Lerner’s songs and not smile, not light up like a damned childhood Lite-Brite. For some reason or another his songs elicit the same feeling as a warm summer night after getting kissed by someone you’ve been crushing on forever and everything seems right. Maybe it’s the genuineness of the craft, the ear-candy structure, or the fact that it kind of sounds like it could soundtrack a modern day John Hughes film—the level of enjoyment and excitement is far from lost in Lerner’s new material and experimentation. If anything it’s amplified.

Take a listen to Ad Infinitum via NPR’s First Listen and stream it below. Maybe have some Hawaiian Punch while your taking it in.
