Immolate Yourself is the third full-length album by American electronica band Telefon Tel Aviv, released on BPitch Control. Immolate means to sacrifice, meaning that the title means "sacrifice yourself". Two Days after its release, band member Charles Cooper died in Chicago, Illinois. It’s frustrating to see a promising artist perish when you’re convinced a new level of masterwork was yet to come. Since debuting in 1999 Telefon Tel Aviv have, with some degree of difficulty and deliberation, worked out the kinks in a vision of electronic music that was always conceptually sound but often more muddled in its realization. TTA were good (but not great) at icy, glitch-ridden soundscapes, but showed themselves to be more adept when the technological trickery was scaled back in favor of soft, dark drones and subtler percussion. Immolate Yourself completes this process with frequent vocals and tracks that, more than ever, could be considered songs.
