“Immolate Yourself“ unites ten tracks with the aim to give the term electro pop a new definition for 2009. Although each track has its own story to tell, together they paint a bigger picture that encapsulates the Telefon Tel Aviv sound. Arguably the albums standout track “Helen and Troy“ was in fact the last track to be finished and in a way marked the studio climax. As Telefon Tel Aviv state, “we knew, after completing this song, that we were in fact finished with the record“.

Hinter Telefon Tel Aviv stecken die beiden in Chicago beheimateten US - Amerikaner Joshua Eustis und Carles Cooper. Beide sind großartige Musiker und liebenswerte Zeitgenossen mit dem richtigen Gespür für Klang und Sound. Das dritte Album „Immolate Yourself“ (BPC 188) ist Ergebnis und Essenz einer musikalischen Entwicklung, welche mit den bisherigen Alben „Fahrenheit Fair Enough“ (2001) und „Map Of Effortless“ (2004) ihren Anfang nahm.
