The Avalanches - Frankie Sinatra     Electronic, Rap 18/01/2017
16 years after Since I Left You, Wildflower is a journey into a kaleidoscopic world of sound, a wormhole that leads to a place most of us didn’t realise existed.
'Frankie Sinatra', draws from a variety of eras, cultures and genres, and exemplifies the tapestry of samples and sonics that is distinctly The Avalanches. An infectious old world carnival inspired rollercoaster featuring Danny Brown and MF Doom, the song includes works by calypsonian Wilmoth Houdini and Rodgers & Hammerstein.

Other tracks by The Avalanches:  Subways  -  Because I'm Me
The Peep Tempel - Totality     Rock, Garage 11/10/2016
More muscular excellence from the ever enticing grot-rock afficionados the mighty The Peep Tempel
Another gritty and grimy slab of grot-rock from Australia's acclaimed masters of unforgettable narrative guitar music, Totality is the slippery soundtrack to your 'Strayan summer debauchery. Hard hitting, thematically heavy excellence.
