The Album Leaf is San Diegan Jimmy LaValle’s solo project. Formed in 1998, the post-rock\electronica endeavor began as an improvisational recording that evolved into the studio album An Orchestrated Rise to Fall. In 2004, Lavalle’s music gained a wider audience and some of the tracks began to be featured on many television soundtracks. Between touring and playing with other bands, Lavalle releases a record about every three years. The music is simply textured, resulting in a minimalistic spiritual sound. It is a clean, fresh sound that serves as a meditation; a calming and beautiful tranquility.
