ALBUM LEAF’S JIMMY LAVALLE PLAYING WITH SIGUR ROS

That’s right! The Album Leaf’s dashing, talented Dr. Jimmy LaValle (who you may remember from 2004’s In A Safe Place) will be playing keyboards for Sigur Ros on three—count ‘em, THREE!—of the band’s U.S. dates. Los Angeles, San Diego, and Las Vegas, to be exact. After all, he has been longtime buddies with the band, who were with him when he recorded his last full-length for Sub Pop in their native Iceland.Did you know that if Jimmy sits down at a piano, you can ask him to play “a little something” and he’ll whip out a Bach concierto and blow your mind? It’s true! Did you know that his last record, which you can buy by clicking below, will also blow your mind and that we’re looking to release the next Album Leaf record in 2006? Take THOSE facts to Pitchfork, friends.
