    You heard about the new song playing on a hotline, right? I called it, sounded good.

    Anyways, I think it is actually true. There's already a teaser of the triple J interview with the group. So I doubt they would hype this up without it being legit.

    I enjoyed it for sure.

    It's not just an extension of SILY, which is a very good thing IMO after waiting a decade and a half. I am definitely even more intrigued to hear the album now, which should be the main purpose of any single.

    The thing I liked so much about the SILY album was how well it worked as a whole rather than a collection of songs. I've never thought of the Avalanches as a singles/hits group and have rarely included any of their tracks in any mixes I've put together because I prefer listening to them in the context of the whole album.

    That said, I like the new track just fine.

    Sounds like an electro-swing remix of a Damian Marley song. Woof.

    the song doesn't suck because it's stylistically different than their last album. it sucks because it sounds like some high school kid's shitty garageband attempt at making a Parov Stelar beat with a couple of random rap acapellas thrown over it. it just sounds so lazy for an Avalanches song. I mean, the bridge is just a sample of an oboe (or something) playing "My Favorite Things". Come on. They're so much better than this.

    I can see why this was chosen as the single and I know it's just one song, but hopefully the rest of the record is a lot better.

    Agreed here. I think the song is fun. Not going to change the world as Danny Brown said it would, but is enjoyable as a summer song. Between this and the tease they had looping on their hotline I'm confident the album as a whole is going to be a good listen.

    I agree that it is a fun song and it has given us another classic Avalanches music video, but it is not what I expected as a premiere song. This is definitely a track that I will skip over, although we have 22 songs to look forward to and I'm sure there are going to be some solid gems since the hotline track sounded promising.

    Looking forward to this album as being the summer groove.

    The new song is fun. I had it on repeat on the way to work.
    Any reviews from Primavera asap would be nice...

    So accurate. Hopefully they're not even trying to do the perfect flowing album thing that Since I Left You nailed so perfectly, because where ever this ends up, it'll fuck up the flow. Unless it's all garbage or whatever. Even the video seems like a desperate attempt to be quirky where the "Frontier Psychiatrist" video was offbeat in an inspired way. Hopefully, there will be some good tracks or something. Trying to just go in with no expectations because judging a work against a previous masterpiece it can in no way live up to isn't fair at all.

    I wonder if Primavera was as much of a mixing trainwreck as the previous Avalanches mixes I've heard. Anyone?

    Pretty good tune. That psychedelia was always there, so no complaints about it being brought to the forefront.

    They released a mixing desk recording of their Primavera Live set. It was on their Soundcloud but got taken down. Here's a link while it lasts: https://www.mixcloud.com/stereoscent...era-desk-tape/

    huh. apparently they were supposed to have a live band.

    “Put this show together an hour before showtime after visa fuckups nixed our live band plans. Thank fuck we had our vinyl with us. Special thanks and much love to Jamie xx who came through for us with the classic 'good times' acapella at the last moment!”

    They also note that the “mixing is ruff as fuck” for the live audio, “but that's the way we roll. None of this ableton bullshit, this is punk rock kids!”

    Yeah, they're supposed to debut the live band when they get back to Australia next month. I hope they can sort out the visa stuff and bring it to the U.S.
