The Avalanches – Since I Left You


Since I Left You is the debut studio album by Australian electronic music group The Avalanches, released on 27 November 2000 by Modular Recordings. It was produced by group members Robbie Chater and Darren Seltmann (under the pseudonym Bobbydazzler), and samples extensively from various genres. The album was recorded and produced at two separate, near-identical studios by Chater and Seltmann, exchanging audio mixes of records they sampled.

After the album’s positive reception in Australia, the duo considered an international release ‚Äď its date was held back until 2001 in the United Kingdom and North America and appeared in slightly altered forms. The delay and changes occurred so that the group could obtain permission to use the samples or use replacements. Four singles were released from the album: “Electricity”, “Frontier Psychiatrist”, “Since I Left You”, and “Radio”. The group promoted the album by organizing headlining tours in Australia, Europe and the United States.
