This Brooklyn group may be called creators of psych-folk, and to be honest I hear both qualities of that equation too but I hear a bit more than just that. Wild Leaves have a new 4-song EP out called Hello Sunlight and from it is a very cool and polished video that sums up what they and their music is about. This one is called “Open Sky” and if it doesn’t make you feel more optimistic about yourself and the world, listen to it again. Then again. For those with a keen ear, the album was recorded on analog tape in Brooklyn at Saltland Studio with engineer/mixer Robert Mallory, who has worked with Kings Of Leon and Paul McCartney in the past). The entire project was mastered by Matthew Agoglia, known for his work with Wavves and Spoon. It’s an earfest, basically.
