The Avalanches | Since I Left You

The Avalanches are an electronic music collective from Melbourne, Australia. They are well known for their use of eclectic sampling, having created their debut album, Since I Left You(2000), entirely out of over 3,500 samples of obscure records, movies, and television shows. This is famously demonstrated on their hit single “Frontier Psychiatrist”.

Before this, they were a hip-hop group with the single album Rock City and the EPy El Producto. Currently, The Avalanches are appearing at outdoor festival events with a DJ set, and are reportedly working on new material.
