can you believe i found this in 2013 for $15 in mint condition and didn't buy it? went back the next day and it was of course gone.

"What It Is Without The Hand..." blows my mind every f*ng time.

This ain't "glitch pop" (except "My Week Beats Your Year") but it is Glitch. A tremendous sophomore release from this incredible duo.

FYI those buying the 2 x LP, I believe copies also originally included a translucent sleeve with the artist name and album title in white script on the front. When you're buying might want to ask if that's also included.. (I didn't know it was)

The double vinyl pressing of this is fantastic quality.
Hard to get in NM condition though...

It saddens me to see one of the best songs cut from the LP (Sound In A Dark Room)

Otherwise, I would spring for the 50 bucks.

An interesting progression for Telefon Tel Aviv, who took it to the next level by spicing their already brilliant IDM cuts with vocals by Linsday Anderson (who worked sooo amazingly in "Sound In A Dark Room" on "Immediate Action #8"), and Damon Aaron (who previously worked with I-Wolf). It is a beautiful album, that easily loops from the end back to the beginning with melodies stuck in ones head for days on end...
