Leaf 20

Celebrating 20 years of The Leaf Label

Closed

Closed

In recognition of 20 years loyal service to releasing that beautiful noise, The Leaf Label is issuing an extremely limited deluxe vinyl box set featuring ten landmark albums from across the back catalogue. The Leaf 20 box is comprised of fourteen pieces of pristine white vinyl in full artwork and wrapped in bespoke, hand-printed paper covers, accompanied by the ten albums on CD, plus a fold out catalogue artwork poster, a limited edition print, and liner notes by acclaimed writer and journalist Rob Young. All painstakingly curated and assembled by label founder Tony Morley in collaboration with Leeds design studio Split, this is the finest Leaf document money can buy. Weighing in at almost 5kg, it may not endear you to your postman.

As well as the box set, which will only be available through Pledge Music, Leaf is reissuing the ten albums on regular black vinyl (also with bonus CDs). Quantities will be limited, so don’t wait…

Most of the selected albums have been out of print on vinyl for many years, chosen in part via a Leaf poll. They are spread across the years and begin to reflect the length, breadth and consistent quality of the label’s output in that time.

The late Susumu Yokota’s 2000 ambient classic Sakura takes on a new significance in light of his passing earlier this year. There have been heartfelt tributes to his work from all corners of the music world, and it seems fitting that this beloved album takes pride of place as the earliest album to feature. Unavailable on vinyl for well over a decade, Sakura is still one of Leaf’s best selling releases.

Of particular interest will be the reissue of Murcof’s 2002 masterpiece Martes. Across three discs, it’s resequenced with the original tracks from the subsequent Utopía CD, plus three rarities from the Martes era, in new, updated artwork.

As you would expect, Caribou and Efterklang feature along the way. As do much-loved albums by Asa-Chang & Junray, Colleen, A Hawk And A Hacksaw and Polar Bear. Wildbirds & Peacedrums’ 2010 album Rivers is available as an LP for the first time. It features ‘Peeling Off The Layers’, used to devastating effect this year as the title music for Sky Atlantic’s flagship series Fortitude.

All of which brings us to the most recent record to feature. The reissue of Melt Yourself Down’s explosive 2013 debut arrives shortly before the release of their second album next year. It comes in a sleeve with a new iteration of the already iconic MYD artwork. Its success demonstrates the enduring appeal of The Leaf Label while resolutely refusing to signpost where it heads next….

Keep your eyes peeled for updates soon.
