Carolyn Michaels I have been waiting for years for a new album from The Avalanches, and now I don't have to. An exquisitely complex and endlessly listenable album. Pop it on when you're at work or working out to get in the zone. Favorite track: Underwater Strut.

about

"New and brilliant. Reminds me in a very good way of The Avalanches."
- Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1)

"I really do like it a lot!"
 ­- Steve Lamacq (BBC 6music)

"An epic cut and paste, sampladelic cartoon of a roller­coaster ride through the history of popular music."
-­ Chris Coco (Legendary House/Downtempo DJ)

"In a time when everyone with a laptop and a pirated copy of Fruity Loops is a producer, here’s a man who really knows what he’s doing, sculpting outrageously lovely songs with the finesse of someone who’s spent their whole life immersed in great songs."
- Joe Sparrow (Editor - ANewBandADay.com)"

"...like meeting someone you feel you’ve known your whole life. Love at first listen. It makes me dream of the luxurious beach dance parties, I could and should be having, and if the guests happen to be mistaken about whether it’s the 60s, all the better."
- DippedinDollars.com

"Go ahead. Try not to turn this up loud."
- Laurent Hrybyk (Pasta Primavera)

"Bloody amazing" ­
- Dyl Mei (Legendary Welsh Tastemaker)

"An incredible talent, obviously a musicologist."
- Adam Walton (BBC Radio Wales)
