Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but if you do a search on the APRA website for "The Avalanches" you get a list of their songs including what I'm hoping are tracks from the forthcoming album.

We've already heard "Step kids" mentioned as a possible track so what do you think about the other titles listed?

Go here https://www.apra.com.au/cms/worksearch/worksearch.srvlt and search "The Avalanches" into the performer field.

Some of the possible tracks listed -

INTRO
BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE
BILL GATES
BODY ROCKIN
CRAZY BUSINESS
DR SECRETS
DRAGONFLY TV
DREW GOES NUTS
FUCK YOU
I'LL PLAY ANYTHING
KILL BILL
LIVIN UNDERWATER
NEW FACE IN HELL
NIGHT FLIGHT
OUT OF TIME
PAV CORP SPECIAL PAYMENT
PUNK PANACHE
SLAYER
STEPKIDS
THE AUDIENCE
THIS IS MORE
UNTITLED (INTRO)
UNTITLED (OUTRO)
YOU DONE IT NOW BABY
ZOMBIE


P.S Hope I'm not being a dick and spoiling the surprise here. I've been checking this forum almost daily since the first album came out and thought I might be able to contribute something useful. :D

Nice detective work, Clint! I wish I'd thought of that.

Each song is given a number when it's registered for copyright, which allows us to sort the songs chronologically. So after we discard all their released songs, as well as "Baby, It's Cold Outside" (which is a song by the old 60's band The Avalanches) and the Untitled Intro and Outro songs (which I think are from El Producto), we are left with the following songs, sorted by time period:

1 - Songs from the time of El Producto:
Crazy Business - Seltmann D/Chater R/Mcquilten G/Di Blasi
You Done It Now Baby - Seltmann D/Chater R/Mcquilten G/Di Blasi
New Face In Hell - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann

2 - From the time of the first Electricity single:
(EL) Producto - Chater/Seltmann/Mcquilten/Di Blasi
(Not sure if this is actually a song, or just the EP)
Bill Gates - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
Dr. Secrets - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
Kill Bill - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
Slayer - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
Punk Panache - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
House Boat - Chater R/Mcquilten G/Di Blasi A/Seltmann
Drew Goes Nuts - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
I'll Play Anything - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
Body Rockin - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
Intro - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Seltmann D/Mcquilten

3 - From the time of Since I Left You:
My Baby - Chater R/Di Blasi A/Mcquilten G/Seltmann
(This might just be another name for "With My Baby", which is also registered under its proper name)
Pav Corp Special Payment - Seltmann/Chater/Mcquilten/Di Blasi
Out Of Time - Chater R

4 - From the time of their Wolfmother remix and Ray of Zdarlight:
Dragonfly TV - Chater R
This Is More - Chater/Di Blasi/Mcquilten/Seltmann
Heartbeat Intro - Chater R/Seltmann D/Di Blasi A
Zombie - Chater R/Seltmann D/Di Blasi A
(This might be just the Zombie Relaxation Tape)
Fuck You - Chater R/Seltmann D/Di Blasi A
The Audience - Chater R
Night Flight (Aka The Game Plan) - Chater R/Seltmann D

5 - The time of their H&C Remix, and "Cowboy Overflow...":
Livin Underwater - Ferguson/Chater/Di Blasi/Seltmann
(I'm not sure who Ferguson is. Any ideas?)
Stepkids - Loewenstein J/Chater R/Di Blasi A
(I'm assuming this is Jason Loewenstein, from Sebadoh - and note the absence of Darren Seltmann from the writing credits.)

Keep in mind that songs are sometimes registered slightly out of order, but this should give a rough idea of when the songs were recorded. Let me know if I missed anything.

Great work, indeed. Now who's going to compile all the lost tracks and post them online :)

Here's some additional info to my song-list above, for anyone interested:

1. The song listed as "Pav Corp Special Payment" sounds more like some business transaction for copyright purposes than a song, but we can't be sure.

2. The Song "Dragonfly TV" is listed as "Dragonfly TV - BG Cues" on the BMI database, so is probably Background Cues for a television show.

3. The songwriter on "Livin Underwater" listed as Ferguson is identified on the ASCAP website as Jay Ferguson. There are two Jay Fergusons, the singer from the 60's band Spirit, and the guitarist from the 90's indie-rock band Sloan. It might seem more logical to be the one from Sloan, however Spirit released a song on their first album in 1968 called "Water Woman" featuring the lyric "Livin' underwater is something wild", so the Avalanches song probably features a sample from this song. You can hear the Spirit song here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNA5hPEVJC4

That's some fine detective work, marc206. I only knew Jay Ferguson from Thunder Island and didn't know he'd been in Spirit. And the lyrical connection you make seems sound.
