Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Originally formed in 1999, The Album Leaf went from a solo project of Jimmy LaValle (while he was spending time in San Diego area bands Tristeza, The Locust, Swing Kids, and Gogogo Airheart) into a full-fledged live band, and has been making its mark as a soft-spoken innovator ever since. For over 20 years now, LaValle has exercised his creative vision into the realms of film scoring, sound collage, and his singular style of ambient-electronic-rock music on labels from Tiger Style to Sub Pop to Relapse Records. Now in 2017, LaValle is launching his own new imprint Eastern Glow Recordings and has some exciting things in store.
In December, deluxe reissues of An Orchestrated Rise to Fall, originally released on Music Fellowship/Linkwork Records in 1999, and One Day I'll Be On Time, originally released in 2001 on Tigerstyle, will be released by Eastern Glow. The former was born out of Gogogo Airheart member Mike Vermillion recording LaValle's improvisations on a vintage Roland drum machine and a Rhodes Piano. The vinyl reissue will feature a die cut leaf cover and will come as a colored pressing.
The latter album displayed LaValle's talents in a full on recording studio, and was the album picked up by Jón Þór Birgisson of Sigur Rós, who then asked The Album Leaf to support them on their upcoming tour. The vinyl reissue of One Day I'll Be On Time will be a double LP featuring a die cut leaf cover and will also come as a colored pressing.
