"Avalanche Rock" is the shortest song on ''SILY'' at 21 seconds long.



* SiameseTwinSongs: There are two instances of this; the pairs of "Since I Left You" and "Stay Another Season", and "Etoh" and "Summer Crane". For the first pair, the drum loop heard throughout "Since I Left You" is carried over into "Stay Another Season", while the titular vocals of "Since I Left You" don't appear until halfway through. For the second pair, only the vocals of "Etoh" are carried over into "Summer Crane".
** There's also an instance of Siamese ''Triplet'' Songs; "Flight Tonight", "Close To You" and "Diner's Only". The synth sample heard in "Flight Tonight" keeps playing for a bit while it goes into "Close To You", which in turn has a section near the middle that is sort of reprised in "Diner's Only". There's also a vocal sample used in "Close To You" that goes "Gentleman that's going round, turning the joint upside down" that can be heard in "Diner's Only", but a lot quieter.

They've also started work on a second album... in 2005. There had been many announcements of the album's development throughout this time period, but no release date was permanently set. They ''did'' reveal [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XTrz0yvxe0 a demo track in 2012, though.]] In 2016, they released [[https://youtu.be/NAMPOAfdH8U this video]], [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] the album's long creation process, presumably to confirm that they're still working on it. They followed this up with the release of "Frankie Sinatra", featuring Music/DannyBrown and Music/MFDoom, confirming in an interview that the new album's title is ''Wildflower'', and [[https://www.facebook.com/theavalanches/photos/a.10150623460292273.387323.23154697272/10153484662442273/?type=3 making this announcement]] on their FaceBook page. After 16 years, it finally happened on July 8, 2016 (with a release 1 week prior on Apple Music), with even more special guests including the likes of Biz Markie, Toro Y Moi, Camp Lo, Ariel Pink, and Jonathan Donahue.

** ''Wildflower'' has a Siamese ''Quadruplet'' song, with the opener "The Leaves Were Falling," "Because I'm Me," the album version of "Frankie Sinatra," and "Subways" all seamlessly leading into each other.
