listen to The Avalanches new LP ‘Wildflower’
The Avalanches‘ long-in-the-works second album, Wildflower, is out next week but you can stream it right now via Apple Music. Albeit with a lot more special guests (Danny Brown, Father John Misty, Biz Markie, DOOM, Toro Y Moi, Mercury Rev’s Jonathan Donahue, Camp Lo, Royal Trux’s Jennifer Herrema, the Bad Seeds’ Warren Ellis) than Since I Left You, the new album is still working in the cut-and-paste, dreamlike collage style The Avalanches are known for. Impressive as their guestlist is, the best songs here, like single “Subways,” simply rely on these Australians’ impressive crate-digging and clever mixing skills. Listen below (you need to be logged into Apple Music).
Will The Avalanches be playing Queens’ The Meadows festival in October? Stay tuned.
