Telefon Tel Aviv
Part i

September is shaping up to be a very busy month here (and towards the end of it I shall be going on vacation for several weeks), but I was so moved by a song I just came across while putting together a playlist featuring the work of the band Telefon Tel Aviv – an electronic duo from New Orleans and now based in Los Angeles whose future was thrown into doubt by the death of one of its members, Charles Cooper, in 2009, but which will continue due to Joshua Eustis’ dedication – that I simply could not resist sharing it in advance.

On Telefon Tel Aviv’s Soundcloud page is a breathtaking cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire.”
