The Avalanches returned with Wildflower, earlier this year, marking it their first album in 15 years. It also has been as long since the outfit curated an “Essential Mix” for BBC Radio 1. However, that changed today as The Avalanches took over the radio with a 45-minute playlist that included music from Frank Zappa, Sun Ra, Ratatat, Nina Simone, Betty Everett, The Parliaments, Madlib, The Stooges, Bad Brains, and more. Listen to their mix on the BBC’s website. Their other one came out December 11th, 2001 and can be listened to below.
