ok lets make no bones about this. lets not mince any words here. the avalanches are awesome. times a million. i cannot comprehend how you get a sound that is so flippantly fun.. so nonchalantly breezy and intelligent..

The Avalanches - Everyday

The Avalanches - Slow Walking

to the avalanches:
im sick of chewing old (yet still incredibly tasty) bones lads.. stop putting your finishing touches on your second album and put him out so everyone can enjoy a summer of sitting around drinking cocktails to your music.
i have to admit that this mysterious radio silence is making me sad.

thanks
miss you so much right now

PS: i live in bondi as well- maybe it would be fun if you spun a copy past my place on your christmas day dropoff?

bonus tingly/m83 like cinematic genius:
Franz Ferdinand - Fade Together (The Avalanches Remix)

Spoke to Pav(MODULAR RECORDING BOSS, The Avalanches lable) a few weeks back and he said that he was getting the full finished version on christmas day!!! So it's done and dusted. They are just waiting for the world to catch up first.

absolutely. its just incredible, i rarely hear music that is so well produced. I've got a few avalanches mixes, and they don't really consist of songs, but more of a singular, uplifting rhythm.
