Listen: Telekinesis covers The Kinks’ “This Time Tomorrow” for Wes Anderson tribute album

    On May 13th, American Laundromat Records will release a tribute compilation celebrating universally beloved oddball director Wes Anderson. Featuring 23 artists covering songs featured in his movies, the album’s roster of contributors includes names like Generationals, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Freelance Whales, and Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s tackling music by David Bowie, The Velvet Underground, Love, The Rolling Stones, and more.

    Today, the label shared a preview of the release with a sweet rendition of The Kinks’ “This Time Tomorrow” courtesy of Seattle power-pop outfit Telekinesis. With the original song having a prominent spot in Anderson’s 2007 film The Darjeeling Limited, Telekinesis mastermind Michael Lerner gives it a faithful treatment. His voice a tad more tender than Ray Davies’, he gives the already inviting song an accessible power pop sheen with a peppy bass line and subtly added hooks. Listen in below (via The A.V. Club).
