The Avalanches lock down a second week at #1 with their third album

After a huge 23-1 leap to #1 on the NACC 200 last week, Australian-duo The Avalanches unsurprisingly lock down a second week at #1 with their third album, We Will Always Love You (Astralwerks).

It’s also nice to hear live instruments and be able to see small details you might not see at a huge concert.”

“We’ve used DISCO for digital servicing for quite some time so I feel like we were well positioned to adapt to the problems of getting music to people and I think radio did a great job of embracing digital servicing as we went through that transition. The biggest challenges that we are facing are coordinating details and technology related to remote sessions and interviews and getting new music to stand out when people don’t get to discover and connect with bands by seeing them live.”
