The Avalanches have pointed fans towards what might just be a brand new mixtape.

The Avalanches continue to tease fans on a near daily basis. The Australian duo have been working on new material, with their always entertaining Twitter feed throwing out hints on a daily basis.

Recently, the pair have been pointing towards a new site by Pinchy & Friends. Following this, The Avalanches then wrote about a link which "may or may not be mixtape by ? ?v?L?NCH?? ?". (via SPIN)

The mix is purportedly by Henry Chinaski - one of Bukowski's protagonists - and is titled 'Sleepy Bedtime Mix For Young Ones' - it's a great listen regardless of its (potential) author.

Last year The Avalanches broke their silence to speak with Australian radio station Triple J. Robbie Chater and Tony Diblasi told the broadcaster that their second album is now at the final mixing stage.

"It's taken a long time, yeah. I mean it's not really mixed or anything yet. We'll probably take another ten years to get it mixed" they warned.

"Nothing's mixed but it's all kind of there. We're still waiting for some vocals and things like that; I think the majority of the music is done. It probably just needs to be arranged a bit and mixed."

As for their set up, it seems that The Avalanches have yet to move with the times. "It's like a bedroom record just on a cheap computer which Robby still uses. The same Mac, a beige OS 7 with software they stopped using in 1997. I have all these half written songs so if I throw the computer away I can't finish them."

"Every time we take the computer somewhere we have to be really careful with it and put in all these little blankets and all this stuff so it doesn't get broken. We're just waiting for it to die but it's hanging in there."

Judging by their frequent Twitter updates, that ol' computer is made of pretty stern stuff.
