Reportedly made up of over 3,500 samples, it's dense, witty, groovy and the perfect example of plunderphonics in action. It's the kind of record that is always going to appeal to crate diggers, but constructed with such expertise that casual music fans also appreciate its genius.
In the 15 years since Since I Left You's release, The Avalanches have been awfully quiet. While a second record has been mooted for years now, there has been little concrete evidence of its completion. Thankfully their sole album remains a masterpiece and hasn't aged since its release all those years ago.
