Amoeba Review

04/01/2013

Michael Benjamin Lerner produces wide-eyed power-pop with hooks and heart to spare as Telekinesis. Spoon’s Jim Eno lends crisp production that allows for Lerner’s moments to land correctly, such as the acoustic build to sudden fuzz-rock blast in “Power Lines.” Lerner keeps his vocals raw on “Empathetic People,” making the song a warm reminder of early ’00s emo. You almost don’t want him to mess with electronics, but when he does, on technoballad “Ghosts and Creatures,” the results are nice enough to not screw with the buzz clip bang of the rest of the album. Fans of Weezer, ’90s Flaming Lips and Grandaddy can line right up for a fix of emotional, hook-driven alt rock (are we calling it that again?). If somewhat predictable, Dormarion at least delivers on its promise. When Lerner strips down for the acoustic “Symphony,” its as naïve yet endearing as an acoustic song called “Symphony” would suggest. Let the teen in you melt.
