double release day: new Telekinesis & new 'old' Dump are out today!

It has taken a while but finally there is a new album by Michael M. Lerner aka Telekinesis! It's called Dormarion (in the US it is released by Merge Records) and again it's full of haunting melodies & energetic hit music, which often manages to be melancholic & uplifting at the same time. And of course 'Dormarion' features the uber-hymnal 'Ghost & Creatures'. Vinyl/CD & digital album are now available everywhere, you can get you vinyl or CD on

Also out today: The 2nd Dump Reissue on 3LP/2CD. Yo La Tengo's James McNew started his still criminally little-known lo-fi project in 1993. After 'Superpowerless' (from 1994) now there's 'I Can Hear Music' (1995), which was never ever released on vinyl before. Remastered by Bob Weston & complemented with bonus tracks. The 3LP edition comes in a extra heavy cardboard cover, with printed inner sleeves & a free download. 'I Can Hear Music' is also available as a part of a collector's box! Out now everywhere or via
