New Orleans-based duo Telefon Tel Aviv trades in "experimental" dance music: in other words the kind you can't really dance to. The band's lovely Fahrenheit Fair Enough album -- awash in peaceful, hypnotic melodies, chattering electronic percussion, serene keyboards, and dreamy guitar glissandi -- has more in common with ambient and modern classical realms. Telefon Tel Aviv visits South Florida as part of the Hefty Records Immediate Action Tour, which includes Chicago's Slicker, Jacksonville's trip-hoppy Beneath Autumn Sky, and local personalities Sindri and Auctionaire. Slicker should provide a nice abstract of the Hefty label; John Hughes III (son of the film director) heads both.
