Leafes - Yes google, I mean Leafes.













Here's what I know about the Leafes (and all you really need to know too):

1. They're Swedish
2. They release very limited amounts of each of their releases (on cd-r or cassette)
3. They're great.

Really, #3 is the most important thing. I implore everyone to go to their last.fm page and download the one album you'll probably only be able to find of theirs. They're lo-fi acoustic pop, with surprisingly solid English lyrics, and have a touch of electronic noise swirling in the background to give a bit of depth to their songs. If you want to impress your hipster friends, you can buy the album here and get one of their cassettes there.

  2. Maybe my favourite lo-fi band, In the Mountain's Belly and the Seedland cassette are full of beautiful awesome songs.
    Everyone should spread the word!
