We haven’t ever posted anything from The Avalanches, and it’s about time. The electronic music group from Melbourne, Australia have been around in some form or another since 1995, but really made a name for themselves in 2000 when they released “Since I Left You” an album that contained over 3,500 samples and received wide critical acclaim including nine ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) award nominations and a 9.5 from the esteemed pitchforkmedia. Soon after they opened for Beck, The Beastie Boys, Public Enemy and Stereolab, and have done official remixes for Belle & Sebastian, Franz Ferdinand, and Wolfmother. We haven’t heard from them in a while, but according to their myspace, they are putting the final touches on their second album – but talks of the new album have been around for over a year now, and details are few and far between - except for the fact that it will be one huge party rocker – so only time will tell. “Ray of Zdarlight” was unleashed about a year ago when these talks of the new album first started to surface, and it’s a perfect mashup of Wham’s “A Ray of Sunshine” and Digitalism’s floor burner “Zdarlight.” If this smooth as butter mix is any indication of what the new record will be like, set some cash aside NOW so you can get it the instant it comes out.
