For many bands, the second release is an occasion for the “sophomore slump,” but for Telekinesis, 12 Desperate Straight Lines is just another chance to create indie-pop magic. The fact that the band is composed of Seattle musician Michael Benjamin Lerner and whoever is collaborating with him would seem to make for little fear of repeating himself on the follow-up to the band’s acclaimed 2009 debut, Telekinesis!, but he still felt anxious and restless when it came to starting work on his second album. Part of the challenge was the fact he was dealing with the end of the long-term relationship that had fueled the wanderlust of his early songs, as well as a mysterious health condition that rendered him temporarily deaf in one ear. For a change of scenery, Lerner exiled himself to Berlin in the winter, writing songs for eight hours a day in a room in the warehouse district.
