Since I Left You is the debut studio album by Australian electronic group The Avalanches, released in November 2000 by Modular Records.

The Avalanches are an Australian electronic music group formed in Melbourne in 1997 and their current lineup consists of Robbie ChaterTony Di Blasi, and James Dela Cruz.

There are cult albums, and then there’s Since I Left You. On their ground breaking debut, The Avalanches presented the world with a totally unique sound, crafted by meticulously combining over 3,500 vinyl samples. The release of the album in 2000 immediately catapulted The Avalanches to critical and commercial acclaim. It became a modern classic, inspiring the generation of musicians and producers that followed.

The Avalanches remind you of a point in your life when you could blissfully hang upside down from monkey bars and just dangle. Like recklessly riding your BMX or skipping rope after downing a sugar-laced pitcher of lemonade.

Since I Left You thrives on making you feel youthful and mighty. Its Utopian grove stand bric-a-brac of grooves, beats, flutters, whistles, oohs-and-yeahs, and sundry animal noises can alternately sound familiar and fresh. Some origins can be immediately placed, and those that can't trigger an impulse that you've heard it somewhere before. You're at least familiar with the tone as it relates to a long-lost feeling of childhood bliss - whether it's staring at a clear blue sky from a fresh-cut lawn or the first time you heard "Rock The Bells".

If you want stifling touchstones, they're there. Dunk the Beastie Boys of Paul's Boutique and Basement Jaxx into the fountain of youth; Sylvester meets Tweety; Mercury Rev links hands with the Bomb Squad for laps around the roller rink. It's no cloyed nostalgia trip, pieced together humbly by The Avalanches who are probably telling you the truth when they say they listen "to a little bit of everything."

The unflinching mix offers plenty of tempo variety, knowing just when to change the pitch before hitting overkill. The second half features a subtle lull that builds up in time for "Live At Dominoes", possibly the strongest cut.

There's little doubt to Since I Left You's status as one of the most intimate and emotional dance records that isn't vocal-based.

Check out the tracks: “Since I Left You” and “Frontier Psychiatrist”. 

This 2017 double LP reissue housed in a gatefold sleeve is pressed in Australia on black vinyl.
