i saw this band play last week at SXSW. I saw some amazing bands playing great live sets, Junior Senior, Broken Social Scene, Modest Mouse, Cake, NoFX, The Lot Six, Aesop Rock, RJD2, little richard, B-52s, and countless other smaller bands. All great music, which put on great shows, but telefon tel aviv was definatly the best live band that i saw preform. broken social scene second. And some of the other bands, while amazing, weren't nearly as good. telefon tel aviv was the best mix of rock and electronic i have ever seen, two laptops, several synthesizers, but guitar and bass and 2 vocalists. I bought the album because the live show was so good. and it is amazing. check it out, and if you ever find out about the chance to go see them live, i highly reccomend it.
