Performer Notes
  • The Avalanches' 2000 album Since I Left You is an undisputed classic of sample-based electronic music. Melding soft rock, sunshine pop, hip-hop, house, ambient, and a thousand other things, while mashing together an alleged 1,500 samples, give or take a few hundred, from sources near and far, it's a listening experience like no other. Nobody else has ever come close to creating anything quite like it, including the band itself. It took over 15 years for a follow-up to appear, but in mid-2016 they released Wildflower on Astralwerks/XL. Unlike Since I Left You, this is a star-studded affair featuring guest appearances from Father John Misty, Toro y Moi, Danny Brown, MF Doom, Jennifer Herrema, and Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue. The presence of real live humans doesn't mean that the group eschewed the use of samples; they are as prominent as ever over the course of the album's long, 21-track running time. ~ Tim Sendra
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat still sets the Avalanches apart, besides their careful groove pacing, attention to detail, and uncanny ability to move you from inside a track to outside looking in, is their sweet sense of nostalgia."

Spin - "WILDFLOWER feels as though it was made for the Avalanches rather than a patient public....The golden-hour string sections and white-bread choirs evoke living rooms instead of lounges; the guests are contributors, not re-enactors..."

Magnet - "[A] psychedelic casserole disguising its utterly mutinous agenda beneath layers of deceptively pleasant dance beats, samples pulled from a million different eras of vinyl and guest spots ranging from Danny Brown to Mercury Rev to Royal Trux."

Paste (magazine) - "The Avalanches approach sound with a childlike sense of wonder that's oblivious to genre constraints....WILDFLOWER is another album that snatches elements from the past but sounds like the future."
