The Avalanches - Since I Left You (Stereolab remix) [stream]

Hear Stereolab's summer-soaked, quick-footed remix of the Aussie group's biggest hit.

Following news that The Avalanches’ 2001 album Since I Left You is to be reissued, what better way to celebrate than to revel in the Stereolab remix of the title track.

Taking the gentle, jangly vibes of elation from the original and injecting it with sharper beats and more metallic sounds, the alternative band’s re-work stretches out the song so that all its best components shimmer through the surface, eventually building into a euphoric choral ending. Listen to this on a hot day, and reflect on how awesome you feel right now.
