Listen to the Avalanches’ Eclectic BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

All the Frank Zappa, Nina Simone, Sun Ra, and Yoko Ono you need for a Saturday

The Avalanches are the latest star DJs to appear on BBC Radio 1’s long-running Essential Mix. The elusive Australians managed to fit Frank Zappa, Madlib, Nina Simone, Sun Ra, Thurston Moore, Yoko Ono, William Onyeabor, the Stooges, and more into their two-hour slot. Listen to it here via BBC Radio 1, where the mix will be available for one month.

After a legendary 16-year wait, the Avalanches’ sophomore album Wildflower is out now. Earlier this week, the group shared a quirky animated video for the single “Subways.”
