Wooo! It’s about time – in honor of its 10th birthday, the classic Avalanches album “Since I Left You” is being re-released. After hearing this album for the first time in 2002, I’ve been hooked – it’s easily in my top 3 most listened albums of all time, and one of my favorites too.
The Avalanches seminal debut Since I Left You is set to get the deluxe treatment with a 10-Year Anniversary issue in the works. The reworking was announced just hours after the record came in at #9 in triple j’s Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time. The record also took out the top spot in the industry list a few weeks back.
Since the record’s global release in 2001, its legacy has continued to grow exponentially. Since I Left You is a record that came seemingly out of nowhere and went on to become not only one of the most influential records of the last decade, but in recent polls conducted by both Pitchfork Media and Australian radio station triple j, as one of the greatest and most beloved albums of all time.
According to the group’s label, the re-issue will feature “the original classic album accompanied by a bonus disc of material including remixes from the original album campaign, new reworks from the likes of El Guincho, MF Doom, Canyons, Black Dice, Jackson and his Computer Band, some exquisite Avalanches remixes of other artists, plus unreleased early b-sides, demo tracks and other such rarities.”
