SOS on the road with The Avalanches


The Avalanches first album in over 15 years, Wildflower, debuted at #1 on the Aria Charts last month, and they played their first full live band show after a similar hiatus at Splendour In The Grass 2016.ย 

In the months leading up to this live return, SOS' own Mike Callander worked with The Avalanches to take their sample-heavy content from this album and their debut, Since I Left You (from 2000) and turn it into a playable format for the stage. Using Ableton Live and a range of hardware, they created a playback environment that would retain the original off-the-grid groove and charm of the original tracks, while at the same time working with a full band in the modern festival context. ย 

Mike will speak about how he approached the task and how it worked at the next Ableton User Group Melbourne event on August 17. More info here:ย
