The Avalanches return with lullaby mixtape

The long-awaited return of the Aussie group is titled 'Sleepy Bedtime Mix For Young Ones'.

After 12 years since the release of their debut album ‘Since I Left You’, the Australian electronic band The Avalanches have made their long-awaited return with a new mixtape, according to Spin.

Over the weekend, the Avalanches posted a link on their Twitter page along with the coy note, “May or may not be mixtape by ♥ ∆v∆L∆NCH∑≤ ♥. “

The set, titled ‘Sleepy Bedtime Mix For Young Ones’, is credited to a certain Henry Chinaski (one of Bukoski’s protagonists). The lullaby mixtape begins with a dream sequence from The Science of Sleep and ends with a bedtime story from a children’s record.

While we’re still waiting for the band’s sophomore album to come, XL Recordings have recently re-issued ‘Since I Left You’ as a double LP. Later in the year, a deluxe reissue with “boatloads of exclusive extras” will follow, according to the group’s Twitter feed.
