The Avalanches are an electronic music collective from Melbourne, Australia. They are well known for their use of eclectic sampling, creating their debut album, 2000's "Since I Left You", entirely out of over 3,500 samples of obscure records, movies, and television shows. This is famously demonstrated on their hit single "Frontier Psychiatrist".
Before this, they were a hip-hop group with the single album Rock City and the Extended Play El Producto.
Currently The Avalanches are appearing at outdoor festival events with a DJ set, and are still reported working on new material.
