Since I Left You (Astralwerks), The Avalanches' landmark debut album, is now once again available on vinyl - in a limited edition, blue vinyl double edition, found exclusively in the U.S. at independent retailers, and in a standard double black vinyl edition, available now onAmazon. On their groundbreaking debut, the band presented the world with a totally unique sound, crafted by meticulously combining over 3,500 vinyl samples. This approach set a precedent for dance music, inspiring the generation of musicians and producers that followed.Released in Australia in 2000 and in the U.S. and the U.K. in 2001,Since I Left You placed in the Top 10 of Pitchfork's Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone's Greatest EDM Albums of All Time.
The release of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches' sophomore album, Wildflower (Astralwerks). Available HERE, it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016. Wildflower won international acclaim, with The Guardian hailing it as "a joyous journey" and Pitchfork proclaiming it"better than just about any music ever made."
