Listen: Telefon Tel Aviv "Something Akin To Lust" / Territories Preview

Today, we're excited to celebrate our debut release, “Territories”, by sharing “Something Akin To Lust”, the first new Telefon Tel Aviv track in over 8 years.  

“Territories”—billed as a “soundtrack to imaginary worlds”— is available on May 26th digitally and physically, in the form of a vinyl LP bundled with a custom VR headset and free 79A companion app (iOS/Android). The eight-song audiovisual compilation features a series of experimental VR worlds accompanying select Territories tracks, with unique 360°spatial audio mixes and collaborations between 79Ancestors visual artists.  “Something Akin to Lust”, directed by visionary NYC-based artist Timothy Saccenti and featuring the ethereal character illustrations of Steve Teeple (Flying Lotus, Teaching Machine), lets viewers take control of a cerebral, dystopic ego death trip set to the kaleidoscopic slow-burn of Josh Eustis’ latest sculptural mark in the Telefon Tel Aviv canon.  This particular collaboration will be available as an episode in the 79A app this June.    

As an ongoing collaborative project, the “Territories” landscapes will be released as episodes via the free 79A app, with audiovisual pairings by Shigeto / Conor Grebel, Rafael Anton-Irisarri / Can Buyukberber, and Deru / EFFIXX.
