This track comes from Jimmy LaValle’s fourth full length as The Album Leaf, entitled Into The Blue Again. LaValle’s double-tracked vocals are up front and center, a welcome change from his past Album Leaf output. The album may have been recorded near Seattle, but it was mixed in Iceland to get those pianos to sound oh so Sigur Rós.
Speaking of our favorite other-worldly post-rockers, here’s LaValle’s gorgeous, glockenspiel tinged collaboration with Jonsi Birgisson from 2004’s In A Safe Place.
With that voice, Jonsi could be singing complete gibberish and we’d still swoon.
