The Avalanches Drop 20th Anniversary Edition of ‘Since I Left You’

The Avalanches reached for the stars with their debut Since I Left You, an album that could be from anywhere, and anytime.

In reality, it was created back on earth in 1999 and 2000, and released by a band of Melburnians who’d meticulously cut and pasted scores of samples into a musical patchwork quilt, like we’ve never heard before or since.

Its magic ingredients, slivers of songs from the likes of Françoise Hardy, Sérgio Mendes, Raekwon, Wayne and Shuster, and even Madonna, were woven into songs, which included the title track and “Frontier Psychiatrist.” It was crazy in the coconut, and an instant classic.
