Duke LaRue an album for driving on a cool summer night through downtown Los Angeles with the windows down and lights passing you by... serene, and at times surreal. another Relapse grab bag selection... very cool Favorite track: Glimmering Lights.

Hux Strikes me a wholesale relaunch for TAL. And a startlingly good one at that! Pleasant variety on display in the songwriting. Quite a unique addition to the Relapse catalog, too. Favorite track: False Dawn.

brantly Certainly an evolution for the Album Leaf, as this is a fuller, more song-driven experience as opposed to the cerebral post-rock that marked previous releases, but that doesn't detract from the LP's warm post-hangover wonder.

Eli McKenna I had never heard of The Album Leaf before hearing the title track on the latest Relapse Sampler. And now I'm here. As always, I'm late to the game, but I'm glad to have randomly discovered this amazing album. Favorite track: Between Waves.

about

Nearly twenty years into a career that has seen Jimmy LaValle exercising his creativity across the realms of film scoring, sound collage, and electronic / rock music, via instrumental and vocal-driven compositions alike, LaValle and THE ALBUM LEAF are poised to deliver yet another sonic triumph with 2016’s 'Between Waves'. Born out of a thorough reinvention of LaValle's creative process and approach, 'Between Waves' is THE ALBUM LEAF's first proper full-length record in over six years and the first to be recorded and produced as a complete band, and was written with greater emphasis on the group dynamic. The album displays multifaceted, meticulous sound design, a keen ear for balancing disparate influences, and the strongest senses of dynamics, rhythm, and composition THE ALBUM LEAF has displayed to date. From the moody evolution of "Glimmering Lights" to the wistful trip-hop stylings of "New Soul" and beyond, 'Between Waves' is a gorgeous collection of euphoric melodies and emotionally charged, multi-instrumental driven soundscapes from the longstanding innovators. This is intelligent, beautifully composed music at its most inventive, most confident, and most impressive.

Track Name: New Soul
There, beyond the sun, I wait
Here, inside your life, I stay
All this time, in my mind, gets me nowhere
All this time, locked inside, gets me nowhere

There is a way, to come home
There is a way, to come back
There is a way, from here
There is a way
Track Name: Never Far
Closely waiting for your breath
While I’m watching every step
I will run, I will hide for you

Tossing turning in your pain
Finally you call my name
I’ll be close, I will comfort you

I’m always part of you
I’m never far from you
I’m always part of you
I’m never far away

Slowly pouring through my veins
Feel the way it warms my heart
I am one, I am one with you

Gently waking to this day
Suddenly you call my name
I’ll be close, I will run for you

I’m always part of you
I’m never far from you
I’m always part of you
I’m never far away
Track Name: Between Waves
Moonlight fades from my sight
Sunshine, blinds my eyes
Nightmares running through my mind
Sunlight, I’m still here

Feel the rain, won’t let go, no one knows
Inside, we let go, our love grows
Between waves, I take my breath

Moonlight stays in my sight
Darkness, fills my eyes
Thoughts are running through my mind
Somewhere, we are free

Between waves, I take my breath

Feel the rain, won’t let go, no one knows
Inside, we let go, our love grows
