MINING - 'Ophelia'
Published 16 January, 2024 by DM

Our first new music of the year comes in the form of a 14-minute single taken from MINING’s debut album Chimet. ‘Ophelia’ opens the record and sets the expansive and all-encompassing tone of the piece which charts the progress of two storms over the course of a week, utilising sea and weather data from Chichester West Pole Beacon.

The extended running time gives you a chance to lose yourself in MINING’s data driven world. There’s beauty in the numbers.

Unfortunately, the vinyl manufacturing gods take a dim view of such a deep and intricate dive into sonification, and we’re have to push the release date back once again. Chimet will now be released on March 8th in the UK and Europe, and the physical release will hit the shops in the rest of the world on April 5th.

The vinyl edition will be worth the wait. Digital artist Sock Baeus Redding, in collaboration with graphic designer Oli Bentley, has utilised the storm data to produce an edition of 504 double vinyl LPs, with each record packaged in a unique, digitally printed sleeve, time-stamped to correspond to a specific 20-minute segment of the storm sequence.

Watch the ‘Ophelia’ video, which utilises part of a sequence of 2,016 images created using the same technique employed to generate the images for the LP sleeve variants.

Chimet is also available on CD (limited to 504 copies) and digital. Pre-order now.

“Compelling” - 4/5, Mojo

“Majestic power” - 8/10, Uncut

New year new deals

Welcome to 2024. Let’s get back to it.

As a countdown to our 30th anniversary in 2025, how does a weekly discount on classic Leaf albums sound? We will be picking a different album every week and offering it to you at the bargain price of £3.99 for CD and digital downloads (plus tax, postage and packaging where applicable). Where we still have the stock, we will also offer discounts on the vinyl.

First up: Polar Bear’s Mercury Prize shortlisted album In Each And Every One. Seb Rochford and Polar Bear’s legacy in the cross-pollination of jazz in the London scene shouldn’t be understated. It’s gone stratospheric in recent years and Ezra Collective’s Mercury Prize win last year is testament to that.

Get your discounted copy of In Each And Every One on CD, digital or vinyl on Bandcamp now. Available at these prices until midnight on Sunday (January 14th).

The best way to stay up to date with our weekly offers is to follow Leaf on Bandcamp. Otherwise keep an eye on our socials.

Craven Faults in London

Tickets have just gone on sale. We’d suggest you move quickly.
