Now You Too Can Listen to The Avalanches’ Full Primavera Set

In the lead up to the release of their upcoming album Wildflower (out July 8) and a tour (featuring an Australian show at Splendour In The Grass), The Avalanches have made their live return at Primavera Sound in Barcelona. It featured the live debuts of a few new songs, including Frankie Sinatra and Subways (which was teased through a hotline). There has already been footage of the show surfacing online, but now the band has seen fit to release the full audio from the set on Mixcloud. Because they are just that nice.

They also shared a funny little anecdote about the mix, and how it was almost a disaster. In a collection of tweets the band recounted the story of how they “pulled [the mix] together an hour before showtime.” Apparently they had a few visa issues that caused them to abandon their live-show hopes. They also gave a shoutout to Jamie xx, who provided them with the acapella for Good Times.

The band was also quoted as saying “mixing is ruff as fuck” when talking about the live audio, “but that’s the way we roll. None of this Ableton bullshit, this is punk rock kids!”

Give the mix a listen below, and enjoy the good beats.

But if that wasn’t enough of The Avalanches for one day (let’s face it, is there such a thing as too much of these guys?) they also previewed a new song on Beats 1 earlier today. The track, titled Colours featured Jonathan Donohue of Mercury Rev, and for now you can listen to the whole thing here (skip to the 1 minute mark).
