Nothing is sadder than a young passing. The electronic duo Telefon Tel Aviv lost a member recently, just two days shy of the release of their third album Immolate Yourself. Cooper was just 31 and in my opinion, in the midst of what would have been a long, fruitful career. You can read a small, but touching bit written by Joshua Eustis, the other half of the group on their myspace blog.
Here is my favorite track of theirs, the title track from 2001’s Fahrenheit Fair Enough. It’s a calming instrumental, skittering with polite blips and beeps that sing like lead vocals.
