The Avalanches‘ acclaimed debut album Since I Left You is composed almost entirely of samples from other records — but there’s nothing lazy or unimaginative about their approach to recording…
Few records managed to capture the dizzy rush of the cut-and-paste aesthetic as succinctly as The Avalanches‘ Since I Left You. With its immaculately sewn patchwork of found sounds and gussied-up rhythms, the Australian duo’s charming debut seduced almost anyone who came near it.
Entitled ‘Running Red Lights’, The Avalanches new track features Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, LA-based artist and Pink Siifu. Last month, the electronic group also shared a new track with Blood Orange, AKA Dev Hynes, ‘We Will Always Love You’. It was the first new music since 2017, when The Avalanches revealed that they had begun work on a new album following the release of 2016’s ‘Wildflower’. That album is expected to drop later this year.

Ville à Dômat: Music Won’t Tear Us Apart
Saux and Sjaak come forward with a truly beautiful number as their first track together and under the stage name City Park. The duo produces powerful electronic indie that is driven by all time classics like Peter Gabriel, Blood Orange and even Prince at times. Bringing the strongest vocals we’ve heard in quite a bit. Not only that, but in this day and age. How you package your art into a compelling body of work is equally important. For lasting visuals, they brought on Jiye Kim and her otherworldly simplistic, minimal approach to painting. Capitalizing on a single color and inspired by the music the pair have put forward.
Following the surprise release of Freetown Sound at midnight, Blood Orange released a new video for the album cut “Augustine.” Dev Hynes directed and edited the clip, which captures the singer/songwriter playing instruments in an empty apartment and an assortment of dancers showcasing their moves on rooftops. Hynes also appears in front of the flag of Sierra Leone, which is painted on a wall. The album borrows its name from Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone where Hynes’ father was born. Our hit of the week.
