Telefon Tel Aviv Map of What is Effortless
- Words: Liz Cordingley
- Label: Hefty
If glitch is the Mrs. Dash of electronic music, Telefon Tel Aviv is writing the official organic recipes-aphrodisiacs, at that. Following up their debut, Fahrenheit Fair Enough, and remixes for Nine Inch Nails and Eminem, Map oozes with seductive vocal soul and analog synth in the spectral space of orchestral ambience and computer-based percussion. Employing the Loyola University Chamber Orchestra, guest vocalists, and their own multi-instrumentalism, New Orleans natives Joshua Eustis and Kevin Duneman are smooth operators leading listeners into a breakthrough boudoir where IDM and R&B are gettin' it on.
