Telefon Tel Aviv: Map of What is Effortless
Buy! - (Hefty)
Formerly from New Orleans, this electronic duo moved to Chicago after the release of their 2001 debut album. While their debut was a pretty abstract and cerebral affair, their follow-up is more song-oriented and features more live instrumentation along with some guest vocalists. There are also some prominent undercurrents of sultry, late-night R&B, giving this album a soulful warmth that’s rare in the world of ambient grooves. 1/19/2004 - Don Yates
