Since I Left You is the the 2000 debut album from Australian electronic outfit The Avalanches.
The album was created in two separate studios by producer duo Robbie Chater and Darren Seltmann (under the pseudonym Bobbydazzler) using extensive samples (an estimated 3,500) from various genres of music. Playful, twisted, psychedelic, sampledelic, delirious and infectious, it's the sound of a group of men who spent most of adolescence rummaging through bargain bins in Melbourne's record shops, constructing their own post-modern disco-pop amalgam from rubbish '50s rejects and saccharine '60s pap.
”Our records make sense in their own world," says Chater. "We always wanted to make a record with a life of it's own that you could lose yourself in."
Since I Left You was previously released on vinyl overseas, but it took the group 17 years to get all samples approved in the U.S. for a vinyl pressing. This INDIE EXCLUSIVE vinyl version was released as a limited edition of 5,000. The vinyl color was chosen by fans voting between red, blue, clear, or gold.
