Telefon Tel Aviv is the musical project of Joshua Eustis, who is trying very hard to make music as a way to sweat out all the nasty things. It has devolved from his eye-to-eye collaboration with the late Charles Wesley Cooper, III, into the musical detritus of all the horror, awe, despair, hope, beauty, and contempt in our world.
Formed in 1999 by the two high school friends, the duo recorded a grip of demos that eventually got them signed to Chicago-based imprint Hefty Records in January of 2000. The resulting album, influenced by Autechre and Aphex Twin as well as Detroit techno, Chicago house and New Orleans bounce rap, immediately established them within an "international conversation about what the meeting point between hip-hop, soul, and electronic music could be," according to the press release.
They would put out two more albums before Eustis's counterpart, Charles Cooper, passed away unexpectedly in 2009. Earlier this year, after "years of self-doubt" and a solo record under the alias Sons Of Magdalene, Eustis decided to bring back Telefon Tel Aviv, heading out on a lengthy North American tour with Moderat and promising new material to come.
