The Avalanches have shared Since I Left You track, “Frontier Psychiatrist (Mario Caldato Jr.’s 85% Remix),” remixed exclusively for their 20th-anniversary deluxe edition by engineer/producer Mario Caldato Jr. Best known for his work with Beastie Boys’ Grand Royal record label, he engineered and produced their iconic, multi-Platinum classics Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication and Hello Nasty. The producer has also worked with such renowned artists as Money Mark, Tone Loc, Young MC, Beck, Björk, John Lee Hooker, Yoko Ono and many more. Listen to “Frontier Psychiatrist (Mario Caldato Jr.’s 85% Remix).” The 20th-anniversary deluxe edition will be available on June 4h via Astralwerks.
The boundary-pushing orchestration of samples — some say as many as 3,500 uniquely sourced and spliced sound fragments — was unanimously acclaimed as an act of technical genius. But the glowing heart of the project, a story of oneness through time, space and infinite diversity, was the magic spell that made the world melt in elation.
The release touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches’ sophomore album, Wildflower.
Announced as the inaugural Luminary Artists in Residence, The Avalanches will be performing Since I Left You with Australia’s Adelaide Symphony Orchestra as part of Illuminate Adelaide: a major new event celebrating innovation, music, art and light. In addition to this special one-off show, Robbie Chater and Tony DiBlasi will be appearing in conversation with Zan Rowe and Jonathan Zawada, curate an exhibition with local artists, and perform a DJ set at MAAD, a massive closing weekend block party in Adelaide’s West End.
