- The Australian group's lauded album from 2001 gets a special reissue this June.
The Avalanches are releasing a 20th anniversary reissue of their 2001 album Since I Left You.
In addition to the original tracks, the package includes new remixes from the late MF DOOM, Black Dice, Leon Vynehall, Prince Paul, Sinkane, Stereolab and Carl Craig, among others. This special edition work arrives June 4th via XL Recordings on vinyl, digital and CD.
Commenting on the original album in a press release, The Avalanches' Robbie Chater described how the group made a conscious decision not to record any of their vocals or use trendy software from that time period. As a result, the work "does seem to just float around in time," he said. "It's almost like an exploration of our relationship with the world and with music and, as music fans, what our place is in the whole process. Looking back, I'm proud of this record as a pure expression of joy and love, heart on its sleeve and is free from irony."
Listen to Prince Paul's remix of the title track.
