Album Review

Charlie Cooper and Josh Eustis' second and third Telefon Tel Aviv albums are as different from one another as their first and second albums. Fahrenheit Fair Enough's fractured, melodic instrumentals morphed into crisp song form on Map of What Is Effortless, with vocalists and string arrangements helping to shape alternately jagged and sweeping productions into tense glitch/R&B torch songs. Following Map, Immolate Yourself — released on Ellen Allien's Bpitch Control label — increases the pensive energy and tension, with both conveyed through snapping beats, taut sequencer patterns, sheet upon sheet of textural elements, and vocals that come across as desperate and/or pained, even when barely audible beneath all the consuming sounds. These are chilling sounds from a dark place that, nonetheless, shelter the listener. Between the European and stateside physical releases of the album, Cooper passed away. Knowledge of that could only intensify the album's most passive spins.

Customer Reviews

R.I.P.

Charlie will be greatly missed.

Jeez People C'mon.

Check it. This album is absolutely beautiful, hands down. I don't find it to be "dancy", i don't find it to be "80's" sounding or whatever someone else try's to label it, i just find it to be BEAUTIFUL. If you want the old TTA, then go put on the older lp's, sorry. Tele just does what they want, which is why i respected them from the very beginning . Listen to the drums, i mean their NASTIER than ever, very thick and heavy sounding, the synths are beefy and fat. Tele's sonic sound is still their, infact the sound is way updated, ran through tape machines and gawd knows what else. True "artist" like Telefon change, period. And if you can't understand that, then well...i guess you never understood TTA in the first place did you? Charles Wesley Cooper, III (April 12, 1977 - January 22, 2009)

RIP Charlie

Thanks for a great third and final album.
