If anyone has heard a better instrumental album released in the last two years, that is stronger than the new disc A Chorus of Storytellers by The Album Leaf, please let me know. Aside from being hypnotic, hopeful and uplifting, it’s transcendent, timeless and incredibly captivating. We’re not even through February and already the top-notch albums are piling up: Vampire Weekend’s Contra, Beach House’s Teen Dream and now this. Hot damn. 2010 is off to a blazing start.
