Drew Miller The reason I chose this track as a highlight , is this whole record for me as a long term jimmy lavalle fan, he really did go back to his roots with his latest masterpiece. Every record continues to shatter what expectations I have of his compositions. In the best way possible. Favorite track: Back to the Start.

New Soul 04:39
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
Never Far 03:55
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
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

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.
