VA - Leaving Eleven [LVS001] / Label Spotlight: Leaves

Signifying both the end of another humanly catalogued year and the birth of a label, Leaves gives to us a beautiful collection of spaced-out bedroom ambient and clicky downtempo joints much in the vein of Khavi Collective and fellow Lithuanian imprint Sutemos, on which a few shared artists (Maps And Diagrams, Mind Over Midi, Sleepy Town Manufacture, IJO) have albums (most notably Maps And Diagrams' "Snowglobe EP"). Through fragile glitchjazz pieces such as Pleq's "Someone Like Comes Into Your Life" and Krill.Minima's "Sonnenbad", the immense presence of the cinematic "Human Energy" by The New Honey Shade, and deep aqueous plunges into Sense's "Mysoul Transmission" and Sraunus' "Begales", the "Leaving Eleven" compilation is a much welcomed introduction to the Leaves label.
