Editorial Reviews

2009 album from the New Orleans-based Electronica duo. TTA have landed on Ellen Allien's Berlin-based BPitch Control label and adopted a resolutely more upfront and upbeat sound, Recorded over the course of a year, Immolate Yourself is very much a departure from the Hefty label-era Telefon Tel Aviv, but Josh Eustis and Charlie Cooper have devised a sound that's at once contemporary and timeless. Vocals often remain shrouded in sonic fog, but this actually contributes to giving this album a moody touch, even when at its most upbeat. Refreshed and revived, Telefon Tel Aviv have produced with this third album their most enjoyable and enduring record to date. Bpitch Control.

I first took interest in Telefon Tel Aviv after hearing this album on the way back from a club in Tel Aviv, incorrectly assuming it to be a local act. Bringing a perfection of dark ominousness to the Intelligent Dance Music genre, this album is filled with great songs but can only truly be appreciated with an uninterrupted playing from start to finish. Get in your car, turn the volume up, the cell phone off, and drive with the flowing yet strangely jagged sounds and get lost for 46 minutes. Unlike their previous works which had great songs and mediocre songs this is their finest album, undoubtably a testament to a promising future, but cut short by Charles Coopers untimely death this is also sadly their last. So if youre like me, left wanting more, I highly recommend the one-man German IDM acts Nitrada and Apparat, Unfortunately Nitrada is only available on the German Amazon site, and even there the supplies are minimal, but you can search the web and download the 2 albums online for $7 and $3- well worth it.

Flawless the entire way through. The perfect blend of old and new. They take a chapter from Brian Eno's book of tape music, but make it accessible and catchy. Vintage synth virtuosos. Unwavering dedication to pure art; no compromise.

The saddest album ever. I wish Charlie could be here to see the accolades come in.

What follows below is a review for an album whose title has been rendered regretfully apt. The sudden passing of Telefon Tel Aviv's Charlie Cooper only two days after the group released their long-awaited third full-length studio record is a coincidence suggestive of a sacrifice: an untimely departure at the arrival of something so great, yet so final. The well-deserved reception of Immolate Yourself, made public on 20th January, has since seen TTA fans buzzing with excitement across music forums worldwide. Based in Chicago and originally from New Orleans, the duo comprised of Cooper and Joshua Eustis had opted to join Berlin's BPitch Control community shortly after their successful release of Remixes Compiled (including Apparat's `Komponent') provided clear indication as to why such a marrying of talent would be ideal. Previously signed on with Hefty Records, their earlier albums Fahrenheit Fair Enough (2001) and Map of What Is Effortless (2004) had been emotive masterpieces in their own rites. Early introduction into the world of TTA meant listening to tracks such as the first's title number, `Introductory Nomenclature', and `Nothing Is Worth Losing That', with an awe reserved to the contemporary electronic greats who so masterfully balance the timbre of their glitches, the time-delays on snare and the synthetic chorus in reverb that unfailingly elevates the entire listening experience. Telefon Tel Aviv have always presented something so beautifully understated with their music's philosophical allusions as evidently inspired by science and literature ('What's The Use Of Feet If We Haven't Got Legs?'). But beneath that, their unique chameleon metamorphosis integrating sounds across genres (most notable R&B and ambient) into a quasi-minimal techno has never ceased to impress.Read more ›

I am not at all familiar with TTA's previous work, but my first comment after my first listen was "this is the new OMD CD we've been waiting decades for." It's moody but gentle, and I can't stop listening to it.

Immolate Yourself is a bold new direction for the very talented Telefon Tel Aviv, moving away from their glitchy IDM sounds of the past into a more structured and almost "poppy" attempt at electronic music. The result is nothing short of a masterpiece. Immolate Yourself covers a lot of different sounds and it's almost certain that every person who listens to this will take away something different from this album.

My personal favorite is The Birds, which has an 80's retro dance vibe mixed with atmosphere that wouldn't be out of place in a Boards of Canada album. Helen of Troy continues this 80's dance sound while other tracks, such as Your Every Idol and Stay Away from Being Maybe move into darker, moodier territory.

If you are a fan of IDM or Telefon Tel Aviv and are looking for something darker, or a little different from what's out there, I recommend you pick this album up. It's one of my top 10 favorites and it'll probably stay that way for the rest of my life.

fantastic album. From the first track (The Birds) to (You are the worst thing in the world), this is nothing short of a masterpiece.

TTA's soulful sound inject much needed depth and heart into the sometimes empty and cold computerized music genre.

this album is dark yet enigmatic, it gets better with each listen. The depth of the song writing and the musical arrangement is phenomenal. The fact that this album was made right prior to the death of one of the 2 members makes its somber, reflective mood resonate even further. Its a pleasure to listen to this album.

RIP Chris Cooper, your talents will be missed.

I can understand how some people find this album a bit underwhelming but I think it's amazing. It's just hypnotizing from start to finish. So dark, so moody, yet somehow catchy. The beats are fantastic, the production is brilliant, and the vocals are great -- just another instrument really. It's a shame how few people have even listened to this album. I think it's easily one of the best of 2009.
