abracadabra!

happy new year yall. we've made a heap of mixes and stuff available while we finish the record. they wont give you a hint of the new albums magical sound unfortunately, but they will keep you pilgrims well nourished until the next harvest.

its a really thrilling time for us right now as this record comes together, its so fuckin party you will die, much more hip hop than you might expect, and while there is still no accurate estimated time of arrival, were sure you're gonna love it when it arrives.

much of last year was spent cutting up the spoken word/instructional records we need to tell the albums musical story, and we have some 40 odd songs we're narrowing down and finishing. so its real, it exists, and you know we wouldn't be serving anything up unless it was gonna give you that same special feeling that since has. funnily enough its ended up sounding like the next logical step to since, we just had to go around in a big circle to get back to where we belong.

and one day when you least expect it you'll wake up and the sample fairy will have left it under your pillow.

so big up to clint for all his work in making the downloads available for everyone to enjoy, and have a great oh seven.

It's still better to be an Avalanches fan than a Portishead, er, head. I tried telling all of y'all to walk a mile in our shoes before complaining about a long wait...

Blimey it's been a while since I've had a look!

I like/dislike the changes to the new website.

I dislike them because everything is too small but I like the fact that something has been changed in god knows how long!

actually there's strong rumours that 2007 will see the return of both MBV and Portishead 8)

but then as i've spent something like each of the last 10 years eagerly waiting for the new portishead album that is always promised in those "albums released this year" lists that they publish in january i'll most definitely take it with a pinch of salt

still, good to see some positive news on the avs front at least :D

there's also a new dinosaur jr album in the pipeline, i believe. maybe dino jr and mbv can tour together again like they did back in... '92? '93? my ears are still ringing from that show.
