I have been getting lots of great recommendations from my twitter feed these days, even from some "celebrity" singers. The last two artists both came from Rhett Miller's stream, while today's comes from Anya Marina's stream:
Face hurts from smiling through the @_TELEKINESIS show at Doug Fir. Lerner, Narducy & Votolato raise the bar for power trios everywhere. WOW
So I took a listen to Telekinesis' latest, 12 Desperate Straight Lines and wow, how have I missed this group before? Actually, the brainchild of one Michael Benjamin Lerner and full of great snappy songs, with a somewhat desperate set of lyics - a favorite combo of mine. Here's the cut from their latest, found on the Spin Magazine March downloads, which is unfortunately only on iTunes, but a buddy grabbed the songs for me:

Car Crash

And from their first album:

I Saw Lightning

You can stream it for a limited time on the Merge Records site. Good stuff.

Dirty Things
