The J File: The Avalanches
I was well aware of Australia's radio station Triple J - but didn't know there is a digital station called Double J that has a weekly show called the J files that explores different records and bands. This episode with Tim Shiels looks back at the amazing Australian band The Avalanches - playing their one and only album from 2000 'Since I Left You' in full - the show starts with some of their early EP tracks, includes stories behind some of the album tracks and samples and interviews with some of the band members. Also includes a rare B side of Frontier Psychiatrist I hadn't heard before, and the story behind that track and the song it samples. Quality radio show about an album which still sounds deadly 15 years later.

It ends with a promising clip of an interview with Danny Brown where there is talk of a new album, (although I'm not going to hold my breath!) and the amazing remix of the Hunters & Collectors track they did about a year or so ago, but it doesn't play all of it, you can check it out here.
