Australian sample-mavens The Avalanches are back from a 16 year hiatus with a new single called “Frankie Sinatra” that features vocals from underground wonderkind Danny Brown and metal-faced villain MF DOOM.
I was kinda lukewarm on the song at first. But the video is psychedelic and kind of awesome. Then Danny Brown’s voice came on. Then DOOM’s. Then DOOM said “maybe you go sing calypso like Farrakhan”. And I was sold.
I own that Farrakhan calypso record.
“Frankie Sinatra” is from The Avalanches very long awaited sophomore LP ‘Wildflower’, which is out July 8th on Asktralwerks, a label I didn’t know still existed.
