Product Description

Telefon Tel Aviv: Joshua Eustis, Charlie Cooper. Additional personnel: Lindsay Anderson, Loyola University Chamber Orchestra. New Orleans based multi-instrumentalists Joshua Eustis and Charlie Cooper have come up with one of the most surprising and accessible electronic records in recent memory, at once underground and incredibly mainstream. Their debut album 'Fahrenheit Fair Enough' was an impressionist travelogue, combining an almost scientific, melodic, compositional approach, with organic, jazz infused instrumentation and digital manipulations. Like all good adventures, Map of What is Effortless is diverse. From the Ron Isley-like vocal stylings of L.A. songwriter Damon Aaron and the detached chanteuse musings of L'Altra vocalist Lindsay Anderson on the big vocal cuts here ('I Lied' and 'My Week Beats Your Year') - to the juxtaposition of the Loyola University Chamber Orchestra with synthetic percussion on possibly my favourite track, the string drenched title cut. Map of What is Effortless is Telefon Tel Aviv flirting with big arenas and the homespun style of old, branching out from what they knew and cornering their muse with gorgeous results. This is very definitely a mainstream-destined album, much in the same way that Ulrich Schnauss went beyond a contained fanbase, and looks at electronic music from a much more casual, utilitarian vantage point.

Review

...warm tones of a vintage Rhodes piano and a swell of strings ...both strangely loopy and deeply soulful. -- Vibe

TTA have grown impatient with the sounds of house and techno. TTA draws on everything from Outkast to Pink Floyd. -- New York Magazine

Telefon have been Nine Inch Nails' and Eminem's remixers of choice... gorgeous orchestration, slippery textures, and meaty beats. -- Esquire
