The Album Leaf’s new album…

12th Nov 09 (Thu) Leave a comment

The Album Leaf is done recording and mixing their record in Iceland.  Now back in San Diego, they are getting ready for a winter tour in support of the album, A Chorus of Storytellers, that comes out on February 2nd (2010) on Sub Pop.

They’ll be at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland on Feb 5th (per the club’s mailer)!!  I missed their show this past winter (Jan ’09) due to busy season at work.  Same situation this year, but I’m planning on going regardless of it. :) More tour dates will follow when they’re announced…

The 4 Elements (Mix CD)

Posty‘s Not-All-That-Quarterly Compilation
The 4 Elements

It’s thematic, obviously. Some of it is new music, yet most of it is just music I’ve always liked that seemed to fit the compilation’s schema. The liners are not completed, yet. Hell, a test pressing hasn’t even been completed; so the track order might change some. I’m just drumming up interest before I decide how much energy to expend… email me if interested. It’ll likely go out sometime in mid-to-late July ’06
