"There is no immediately apparent unifying sound to The Leaf Label. The imprint has a magnetic attraction to artists operating on the fringes, to startling hybrids and mercurial fusions. One finds Leaf in the places where electronic music, classical, jazz, pop, folk and rock meet -- the places where the sparks are flying. In recognition of 20 years of loyal service to releasing beautiful noise, Leaf is reissuing ten landmark albums in limited editions. Most of the selected works have been out of print on vinyl for many years, and the choices have been driven in part via an online poll. They are spread across the years and begin to reflect the length, breadth and consistent quality of the label's output in that time. The late Susumu Yokota's 2000 ambient classic Sakura takes on a new significance in light of his passing earlier this year. There have been heartfelt tributes to his work from all corners of the music world, and it seems fitting that this beloved album, one of the label's earliest and best-selling releases, be made available again."
