High Five: Wildflower by The Avalanches

Each week Kinderling gives a HIGH FIVE to music, artists, albums and other stuff we think is awesome!

Today's kids weren’t even a 'twinkle' when The Avalanches last released a record. Fast forward to 2016 and our favourite group of Aussie DJ / producers is back with Wildflower, a superb collection of sample-heavy, multi-layered masterpieces.

Some songs are definitely for grown-ups only, but kids will be captivated by the bright tones and bouncy rhythms of our hand-picked selections below. 

Wildflower is full of sounds and beats that will inspire kids young and old so tune in all this week.

Note: The radio versions below all have the Kinderling seal of approval for children's ears.
