The Avalanches - We Will Always Love You (2xLP Black Vinyl)

  • Sale
  • Regular price €32,00
Tax included.


Building on the sample-based approach of their classic albums 'Since I Left You' and 'Wildflower', but stepping boldly into new terrain, 'We Will Always Love You' is a full length masterpiece from The Avalanches. An exploration of the vibrational relationship between light, sound and spirit, 'We Will Always Love You' doubles as 'an exploration of the human voice' and a spiritual reckoning via the big questions 'who are we really? What happens when we die?'. The Avalanches's music has always dripped with melody, but because of this expanded role for guest singers and writers, 'We Will Always Love You' is their most song-oriented album yet.

LP pressing on 180-gram black vinyl. 



This stitched together audio quilt of lilting weirdness delivered all I expected, following as it does in the same vein as Wildflower. I don't pretend to fully understand what The Avalanches are trying to say, or how they decide on the interwoven continuities of an album - or, indeed, if those continuities add up to a pre-determined creative concept or theme - but there is something about their sound that pushes buttons on the periphery of memory, where scraps of dialogue, familiar and yet unfamiliar voices, rhythmic repetitions and part-songs drag at elusive sensibilities until it all begins to make some kind of sense, until the point at which it doesn't. Marvellously original stuff and well worth having on repeat.
