Telefon Tel Aviv "The Birds"

It's been five long years since Telefon Tel Aviv gave us a full-length album. We're not sure what the New Orleans-based duo has been up to in the interim, but we were thrilled to hear the announcement about a follow-up to 2004's Map of What is Effortless, and even more elated upon hearing the new release. Immolate Yourself marks what would appear to be a growing disinterest in guitars and a newfound love of analog synthesizers for Charlie Cooper and Joshua Eustis. Which means you can expect a denser, more complex bundle of tracks come January 20, when the album drops. Tide yourselves over with this number off the new album in the meantime.

This is the most complex Telefon Tel Aviv. Anyone who thinks that micro edit drum programing is the only quantifier of complexity needs to open their ears. Best album of 2009.
