Following an unprecedented amount of hype and anticipation, Australian act The Avalanches have decided to release a stream of their forthcoming album, Wildflower, a week in advance of its official release date.
The group's first album in 16 years, the 22-track album features collaborations with Father John Misty, Danny Brown, Toro Y Moi, and MF Doom. Having already gotten a taste of their funky, laid-back LP cut "Subways" as well as the nightmarish tune "Frankie Sinatra," which was met with feelings of widespread distaste, the real question becomes this. Will this album live up to the monumental amount of fuss it has created for itself? Listen below and figure it out for yourself.
You can stream Wildflower below via Apple Music (only in the US).
Pre-order the album from The Avalanches' online store.
