The Avalanches - Because I’m Me
The Julie Ruin - Time Is Up
The Avalanches are an Australian electronic music group formed in Melbourne in 1997. They are known for their debut plunderphonics album Since I Left You (2000), as well as their live and recorded DJ sets. Since I Left You was a critical and commercial success, receiving multiple awards, and has been considered both one of the best Australian albums of all time and best albums of the 2000s.
Wildflower is the second studio album by Australian electronic music group the Avalanches. Production lasted 16 years and began around the release of their debut album,Since I Left You (2000). The album contains 21 tracks and features multiple collaborators. The Avalanches have described Wildflower as a "road trip" in an expansive country, "capturing that feeling of growing up...jumping in the car...and heading out to the bush."
In the ’90s, punk rock was a male-dominated scene, and as the singer of riot grrrl band Bikini Kill, Kathleen Hanna inspired waves of female musicians. When she moved on from Bikini Kill, she put her strong-as-hell voice to use elsewhere, fronting the electro-punk group Le Tigre. She recorded and performed with the band for a few years, then, run down from tour, the scrutiny of the media, and late stage Lyme disease, she went underground to recover.
The second album from The Julie Ruin is called Hit Reset. Here, the band further settles into a new chapter, and demonstrates just how easily she can transform fury and feelings into melody and fun.
