Telefon Tel Aviv - Immolate Yourself (Bpitch Control)

Fuzzy electronic songs is what Chicagoan duo Telefon Tel Aviv bring to the table on this musically muddied, but wonderfully endearing album. Clashing sounds, barely visible vocals and clumping instruments vie for attention, as they attempt to break free from the electronic fog that binds this album together. Out of the mist rises standouts such as the glowing The Birds, off-key Mostly Translucent and hurting You Are The Worst Thing In The World. Telefon Tel Aviv bring us a warped view of the world that in the context of this album makes perfect sense.
