Various Artists Telefon Tel Aviv: Remixes Compiled
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Hefty
You don't have to like New Orleans-based duo Telefon Tel Aviv, or the artists they've remixed over the last seven years, to like this compilation-each song here sounds less like one or the other, and more like a new beast. However, hardcore followers of Charles Cooper and Joshua Eustis might notice their dense, trippy style everywhere: Nine Inch Nails' "Even Deeper," John Hughes III' "Got Me Lost/Driving in L.A.," and Apparat's "Komponent" are reason enough to buy. Others, like a Bebel Gilberto version, approach Café Del Mar-style anonymity. But generally, TTA's production imparts a night-blooming, wide-eyed shine that can make anything, even indie mopers American Analog Set, unbelievably sexy.
