A few words from the label:
I’ve known The Leaf Library for a while since Matt and me worked at the same record shop back in London. Having lost track of what the band had been up to, i was pleasantly surprised when I got some of their releases. Their “Nightlight Versions” album is the closest I’ve heard to the sound I initially imagined for Inner Space Travels, so I immediately knew I’d have to have them on the label.
The Leaf Library play a slightly intricate but playful game between lush guitar drones and soundscapes, layering dreamy vocals and field recordings. This leaves the listener closely attentive to all the sound sources but with plenty of room to breathe and get lost into.
We’re very excited to release “About Minerals”, pretty much an album and a half of material that will please fans of Pendant, Biosphere, Laurie Spiegel, Pan American, Chihei Hatakeyama, Eliane Radigue, Noveller, Fennesz or Matthew Shaw.
