The crate-digging masterpiece is back.

The Avalanches’ adored, plunderphonic debut Since I Left You is returning to vinyl for the first time since its original 2000 release.

The concept for the album was forged in the ’90s, when a rag-tag crew of Melbourne kids bonded over cheap gear, sampling, and crate-digging. The record supposedly patches together more than 3,500 vinyl samples.

A follow-up album was teased and mooted for over a decade; only this year did the band’s last remaining members (Robbie Chater and Tony Di Blasi) return with Wildflower, which inevitably struggled to live up to the hype.
