The Australian sample gods The Avalanches are back with their first album in nearly sixteen years. The groups debut, Since I Left You had garnered massive success since its release and is considered as a modern classic. On June 1st, the group debuted their first single leading up to the album entitled "Frankie Sinatra" featuring Danny Brown across various radio stations. In the weeks before that, the group also released a hotline which linked callers to a teaser of a new track called "Subways". What's really important is that The Avalanches are back and that's important!
This is going to be interesting. Obviously there’s so much anticipation, it’s going to be difficult to follow-up such as an important record. And a lot of people have left the group since the first one, especially the guy who did all of the amazing remixes. But nonetheless, I can’t help but feeling hyped.
Is the Subways in the Podcast a teaser or the full song?
Who cares. “We stole peoples music and put a generic beat behind it, and sixteen years later, we’re gonna do it again. Oh, and this time we will be even more pretentious about it, and for kicks we will add one of the most annoying motherfuckers in music to s few tracks: Danny “what the fuck is he rambling on about” Brown. Hey music, go fuck yourself.” – The Avalanches
Oops, I almost read your whole comment. That was real close…
Crikey Mikey! You’re a cunt! A cunt, my boy!
Mikey, I think your anger stems from a bacon deficiency. Eat moar meet!
C’mon guys…don’t feed the troll!
So far we have a leak in good quality of every track aside from “Harmony”, so I don’t think this qualifies as “leaked” but wanted to let everyone know. ITS AN AMAZING ALBUM BTW
The one floating around, which also includes Harmony, is partly recorded with a microphone. Be sure not to report that.
I didn’t. :)
Looks like there’s a stream of the album on Apple Music tomorrow morning at 8am EST. Should leak then, if not before.
Leaked on /mu/
We have it up in case you don’t feel like reading through all those fake links on 4Chan.
Oh, by the way; That OTHER track Damon Albarn talked about, the one that would “change the world” – is that one on here? “Frankie Sinatra” wasn’t dope, I really really wanna hear that other one
Damon Albarn…. DANNY BROWN of course*
I believe it’s called “The Wozard Of Iz” based on wiki.
You, you’re right! Just didn’t say featuring Danny Brown before. Thanks!
