Video: Jonti & Astral People cover The Avalanches

  • September 16, 2013

Outside-In Festival in Sydney Australia, September 21st, will feature Jonti the collective Astral People in a live performance of the seminal Avalanches' album Since I Left You. Today the group released a preview of the performance in a video for "Frontier Psychiatrist."

Speaking to Australian music website Music Feeds, band leader Jonti talked about the performance and the genesis of the idea:

Since I Left You is my favorite album in the world and has come in at almost every important time in my life. The idea came about for this project when I was asked to contribute to the forthcoming album by the almighty Avalanches. I wanted to show my appreciation. In addition, I always wanted to play OutsideIn Festival and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to present the show."
