Avalanches rock it on BBC's Essential Mix, and so much more

Last week, BBC 1 broadcast the first Essential Mix from The Avalanches (tracklist, BBC iPlayer / Mixcloud / Global Sets), which they made in support of their new album, Wildflower (YouTube playlist; previously). This is their first broadcasted mix since 2002, according to MixesDB, where you can find 13 more mixes, to expand the band's limited discography. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. [more inside]

meanwhile in remix art, video and the radio star hi-five

[Soda_Jerk vs The Avalanches] Jerry Seinfeld, Daria, Jay and Silent Bob and many more rub on-screen shoulders in The Was, an eye-and-ear-catching 14 minute collage short. The visual remix splices together scenes and characters from 129 different films and TV shows, and is made by NYC-via-Sydney art collective, Soda_Jerk. Fittingly, the short appears to be soundtracked by audio sampling maestros, The Avalanches, using tracks from The Avalanches' recently-released album Wildflower and alternative mixes. [more inside]

Since I Left You

12 Years ago, The Avalanches released the album Since I Left You. The Album, a dreamy mix of samples, turntablism, and live instrumentation was largely considered a masterpiece, appearing numerous "best of" lists. Anticipation of their follow up album has been going strong for over a decade, but in spite of teases, live dates, and mix tapes, nothing has materialized.

Until now. Last night, The Avalanches released a new demo called "Cowboy Overflow of the Heart," featuring a spoken word performance by The Silver Jews' David Berman.

Since I left you...

The Avalanches are back are back with a new, ethereal lullaby "Sleepy Bedtime Mix For Young Ones", available streaming or as a free mp3 download. ( Maybe.)
