The Australian electronic outfit, The Avalanches, have had plenty of time to craft a follow up album to their critically acclaimed Freshmen LP, “Since I Left You.” With rumors circulating in the press dating back to 2011 regarding their Sophomore production, it’s about time some music is finally starting to surface. With members coming and going in the 16 years that have elapsed since their first crack at it, it’s peculiar to see the group transition to a more hip-hop oriented vibe after the overtly house oriented, “Since I Left You.” Check out the visual treatment for the MF DOOM and Danny Brown single, “Frankie Sinatra,” and peep the vinyl preview via XL Recordings below! The vinyl is available for pre-order ahead of it’s July 8th release HERE.

The Fool’s Gold family has always stood apart from its peers because of its wide appeal and complex sound. Labelheads A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs make it very clear through their curation that Fool’s Gold can be home to any music that they see fit, which is a perfect segue into the latest release on the label — a 22-track compilation titled Loosies featuring the likes of Juicy J, Jim Jones, Danny Brown, and many more.
“One of the things I’m most fond of with Fool’s Gold is our extended family,” says A-Trak. “Our foundation is in hip hop and the talent around us in incredible. Loosies is raw, unadulterated rap from the dudes who hang out with us backstage at Day Off.” Pick up the limited edition cigarette USB over at the Fool’s Gold Recs store today.
