Someone recommended this, and since I liked the weird name and their website's atmosphere (www.telefontelaviv.com) and I like to buy things blindly every once in a while (some of my best music I discovered this way), I went on and bought this on line. It was worth it- big time!
I don't know anything about these guys, but their music is just excellent. The album starts with lush atmospheric melodies sprayed on abstract and totally psychedelic squeaky breaky rhythm and percussion work. They also use an endless array of technologic sounds, and there are moments it all sounds like an orchestra of electrical equipment. As a person that does not own a cell phone for ideological reasons, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing what happened to some friends who own them when they visited and I played this CD- quite funny it was. But this is still a chilling CD, and in the middle everything gets much more relaxed, almost piano bar stuff in T5, and full of so much feel and subtle emotions in T6, just beautiful. In the end things go back to loungy, almost jazzy, music, but still enough to say with occasional jungley squeaks and tweaks.
