If I Was a Folkstar

Album: Wildflower (2016)
  • This is a collaboration with American recording artist Toro Y Moi. The Avalanches' Robbie Chater explained to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation: "Our pal Chaz Bundick [aka Toro y Moi] was getting married at the time that he recorded this song. It's in fact about a night when him and his wife-to-be took LSD on a beach and the experiences they had, it's a beautiful thing."
  • The song samples the radio opening from Queens of the Stone Age's "You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire."
