Originally formed in 1999, The Album Leaf went from a solo project of Jimmy LaValle into a full-fledged live band, and has been making its mark as a soft-spoken innovator ever since. For over 20 years now, LaValle has exercised his creative vision into the realms of film scoring, sound collage, and his singular style of ambient-electronic-rock music on labels from Tiger Style to to Sub Pop to Relapse Records.
The diversity of The Album Leaf's music is second only to the diversity of the music that has inspired LaValle through the years. He's named everything from German ambient/pysch bands like Can, Cluster and Harmonia to traditional mariachi music, electronic music and Brian Eno as some of his primary influences – and it's clear that The Album Leaf is unafraid of thinking outside the box, both as an individual artist and within the larger scope of modern music.
OST is a collection of The Album Leaf's film works. It features the full score of original music composed by LaValle for the 2016 feature documentary, Ovarian Psycos which explores the origins of a women's Latinx bicycle brigade in East Los Angeles.
