About THE AVALANCHES:
Created by the band’s core duo – Robbie and Tony Di Blasi – the Avalanches built their album – Wildflower. Wildflower is nothing less than Smile reimagined in the Daisy Age – a mind-bending cartoon road movie that’s best viewed with closed eyes and an open mind.
The album’s twenty-one tracks take the listener on a journey that traces a crooked, hand-drawn line from the street recordings of the Viking of 7th Avenue – Moondog – and other outsider musicians like Larry ‘Wild Man’ Fischer and his ad-libbed recordings from the streets of Los Angeles. From there, it moves through the outer-space doo-wop stylings of the Cosmic Rays whilst nodding to more celebrated mavericks like Sun Ra and Van Dyke Parks. The record even pays direct homage to Smile itself on the Biz Markie-led ode to dinnertime ‘Noisy Eater’ (a nod to Brian Wilson’s wigged-out classic ‘Vegetables’).
