Marking the beginning of the band's fall tour and the release of its latest EP, Parallel Seismic Conspiracies, Seattle's Telekinesis released this lovely video for "Dirty Thing." The Spencer Gentz-directed joint features a guitar line that sounds like a battery tastes and makes touring with front man Michael Benjamin Lerner look like the nerdiest vision quest ever. Enjoy!
Michael Benjamin Lerner emailed me with details on the song's guitar sound:
"Every song on the EP (except 'Calling All Doctors') was recorded using Logic Pro, and the microphone on top of my Macbook. So, for that guitar sound, I put my laptop in front of my Macbook and that is the sound on 'Dirty Thing.' Super fuzzy and blown out. Like batteries. Yum."
The band comes to Showbox at the Market in support of Merge labelmates Superchunk on October 14.
