The Album Leaf, ‘Into the Blue Again’ (Sub Pop)

Jason Gross // September 27, 2006

With the long, hot summer finally gone, we all need something to soothe our racked nerves, and one-man band Jimmy LaValle is doing his best to fill that role. On his fourth album, he gently eases you into his mostly instrumental world, where shimmering keyboards float around sweeping strings and understated beats. LaValle has toured with Sigur Rós, and his music comes off like a less foreboding version of their moody orchestral drift. | COMMENT
