#13: The Avalanches – Frankie Sinatra

 

Every time a year has drawn to an end since about 2001, the New Years predictions have talked about the possible release of the second Avalanches album. Well lo and behold, this time the predictions were right. SIXTEEN years after ‘Since I Left You’, the Aussie mixmasters finally stopped tinkering and let ‘Wildflower’ loose on the world. After all the fuss, it actually seemed to get a little overlooked in the end – perhaps because of its length, or perhaps the wait was just too long for some. Nevertheless, it was a smash, and this highly addictive lead single has been rattling around my subconscious ever since.
