about

After a year of remixes, drones and instrumental releases The Leaf Library return to their unhurried, melancholy, best with City In Reverse / Kendrick Road – a double A side 7” single / six track digital EP.

City In Reverse is a softly propulsive ode to abstract city encounters, with gently soaring drones, ebowed guitars, and backing vocals from The Left Outsides’ Mark Nicholas.

Kendrick Road is a gorgeous chamber pop shuffle, with lilting strings (by The Left Outsides’ Alison Cotton and Hurtling’s Jon Clayton), and heavy-hearted piano weaving their way through spare, persistent percussion.

***Please note that the vinyl only has the first two tracks from the EP on it, however every 7" comes with a full download of all six tracks.***

The additional tracks include three remixes of songs from Daylight Versions by All Golden (Pete Gofton), Wintergreen (bass player Gareth Jones’s other outfit), and house producer Colors In Waves (John Shearer), plus a Colors In Waves re-edit.
