    The Avalanches are finally making a second album after 16 years

    From the people behind Plunderphonics songs like Frontier Psychiatrist and Since i left you





    More info bout the album from /mu/:

    INFO FROM THE TRIPLE-J INTERVIEW:

    On the album art: "We kind of drew it on a napkin one day"; "psychedelic"; "counterculture"; "we got a flag manufactured"

    Jean Michel Bernard collaborated on the album.

    Darren and Tony have only gone back to SILY a few times since 2000. "We weren't trying to be big or huge...[we were trying] to capture a feeling"

    The majority of the features were done remotely, with collabs sent in. The hardest track was "Frankie" (to mix).

    Sequencing "is kinda what took so long"

    They want to package up all of the other tracks they made that didn't make it to the album in a year.

    Father John Misty is on the album doing Beach Boys-y "textural" melodies in the background ("ooh-ooh-ooh")

    Toro Y Moi is on "If I was a folk star," track 6. It's about him doing LSD on the beach with his wife.

    They also collaborated with Jens Lekman and others (Luke Steele) but their tracks didn't make it onto the album

    Nick Cave is on a song with Warren Williams and Jennifer Herrema.

    Camp Lo
