Electronic group The Avalanches, who formed in Melbourne in 1997, are known globally for their innovative debut album ‘Since I Left You’ (2000). The album was noted for artfully assembling some 3,500 vinyl samples. The band has finally released their follow-up record ‘Wildflower’. We feature a track from this album, along with a track from the first album and a curious demo featuring David Berman of the Silver Jews on spoken word vocals.

Later in the show we feature all four tracks from the ‘My Peace River‘ fundraiser EP by Miss Quincy and Twin Peaks. The CD was put together to raise awareness of the protest movement against the Site C dam on the Peace River Valley in Northern British Columbia. If approved, the $8.8 billion dollar project will flood 57,000 acres of First Nation and heritage agricultural land. All the tracks on the EP were recorded live on the banks of the Peace River by Miss Quincy & Twin Peaks.
