The Avalanches are undeniably iconic in the electronic music scene. After they took a 15 year hiatus to release their second album, it’s sometimes hard to remember some of their original bangers.
With Since I Left You just ticking over on 18 years, we’re throwing back to one of the best tunes from the album, a revolutionary sample based track that had a music video that was up there with the best of them.
Frontier Psychiatrist was a track that utilised a bunch of spoken vocal tracks mixed in with scratches, slight distortion and general spooky sounds to create an eerie vibe that’s somewhat inexplicable. It’s a perfect meld of strange sounds and older people’s voices, all alluding to some sort of madness that seems to befall you if you listen for too long.
18 years on we think The Avalanches debut album Since I Left You has stood the test of time. So check out Frontier Psychiatrist below and tell us if you think the same!
