Being blown away by the Zomba promo mix now. It's like a totally new album.

Has anyone at Modular or involved with the group come out with the annual "It's definitely going to be released next year" quote yet?

I hope it is, at least.

Ha! The guy who made the song wrote a funny tweet about it.

this is good. been wondering who's making fun sample-based music recently.

(would be very happy if someone made fun of me for ignoring artists X, Y and Z here)

I kinda wish they never release the follow-up and it becomes a meme for upcoming releases every year for the next 100 years.

When I was listening to the track on soundcloud this morning, my heart was sinking. Partly because it's probably what any new Avalanches material will resemble and partly because I don't think I want to hear Since I Left You pt. II

good news!

it's too cold for it now, I have put it in hibernation

I can't hang with the vocals on this record at all... otherwise it's quite nice

Using rappers was a bad move – destroys the entire spell of timelessness.

And Frankie Sinatra should be buried halfway through the record, not track three.

Other than that I love it.

"There’s people we’re writing with as we speak, one person mainly. Songs are being developed with the artists attached as we go from the ground up, which is really cool—I can’t talk too much about that though. I’m excited and I’m pretty sure a record will come pretty quickly, but I’ve been wrong about that before."

Kind of interesting how different "Wild Flower" looked (and judging from the tracklisting, sounded) 18 months or so before it finally got released:

Ugh Frankie Sinatra was such a terrible lead single.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Tuesday, 13 February 2018 10:22 (one week ago) Permalink

honestly i don't get why frankie sinatra is so... polarizing

i mean i can get it's got elements in it that might be on the grating side for some people and i can see how it'd leave some undersatisfied impressions in the "this is meant to be the flag-bearer for the follow-up to SILY?"

but it grew on me, especially the whole " 1 bar pause - couple bars from DOOM - another one bar pause - rest of his verse", which imo is the kinda thing that would've fit snugly into SILY II (which let's be real, we shouldn't have expected from a shrunken lineup 16 years later that might not be able to get away with that degree of sampling this time round

on that kind of note, any thoughts on the deluxe reissue they've been talking about since 2011?
