*Shipping for Friday delivery* “Sorry we kept you waiting, it’s been a wild ride and at times we thought we would never make it through. What kept us going during the making this record was a belief in the day-today experience of music as a life force - as life energy. Hearing a certain song on a certain morning can change your day; it can make the world look different, changing the way you perceive light refracting through the atmosphere for the rest of the afternoon. Literally changing the colour and feeling-tone of your world.” - Robbie Chater, The Avalanches.
Following an unprecedented sixteen-year gap between albums and all the revolutions the world has made since the release of their hugely acclaimed, award winning debut album ‘Since I Left You’ (2000), The Avalanches announce their new album, ‘Wildflower’, featuring Danny Brown, MF Doom, Father John Misty, Toro Y Moi, Jennifer Herrema, Biz Markie and more.
Created by the band’s core duo - Robbie Chater and Tony Di Blasi - ‘Wildflower’ is nothing less than The Beach Boys’ ‘Smile’ reimagined in the Daisy Age; a mind-bending cartoon road movie that’s best viewed with closed eyes and an open mind.
Lead track ‘Frankie Sinatra’ is an infectious old world carnival inspired rollercoaster of a song. Featuring Danny Brown and MF Doom on vocals, the song also includes works by calypsonian Wilmoth Houdini and Rodgers & Hammerstein.
In the years since the release of ‘Since I Left You’ the album has established a rarely seen loyalty, its influence ever growing in the age of digital music, sampling and bedroom producers. The Avalanches, meanwhile, have become the stuff of folklore, with rumours abounding about a long awaited follow-up record. Today the rumours end.
