Album Review

Album Leaf, the – “An Orchestrated Rise to Fall ” – [Music Fellowship]

Thurston Hunger   10/1/2005   A Library, CD

Prominent electric piano. It almost
sounds like a grave medical condition
that should scare you. Scares me, often.
But this CD may cure that. Nearly all
instrumental, lush, drifters…show-
casing Jimmy LaValle’s(from Tristeza)
fine fingerisimo. Washes of synths,
certified indie style lo-fi ambience
of daily life, TV, cars, radio. Still
something about that almost painfully
pure, ringing el. piano sound adds an
sad funk to this. How can funk be sad?
I don’t know…descending riffs repeat.
I see slo-mo football highlights in
parts… Instant replay?
