Song of the Day: The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist

I can't believe these guys haven't released a record since 2000's Since I Left You. Before Girl Talk's overzealous mash-ups, I don't think anyone had used as many samples on one record as The Avalanches.  If you're too busy or lazy to make a dance mix for a party, just play this album from front to back and a dance party may break out immediately.

Although the record is solid from front to back, there are a number of great singles.  For my money, none is better than "Frontier Psychiatrist" and its Frau Blucher horse neighs, cuckoo clocks and scratched bird calls.

Furthermore, The Avalanches released the "Literal Video" before it was a comedy meme. This video is so ridiculous that it's completely awesome.
