Left-field indie label Leaf are offering a free label compilation as a free download to anyone registered to their website. 'Don't Run over the Birds, Please' features nine tracks from most of the labels current artists, and is also selling through various online stores from 99p for the entire album.
Now, I'll be the first to admit, some of Leaf's artists are a tad on the weird side, but there's also a wonderful live recording from Efkerklang playing with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra, some eastern gypsy folk from A Hawk and A Hacksaw, and Essie Jain's awesome voice making her soft, mellow, heart-aching folk something special. There's also an exclusive track by Mexican electronic artist Murcof.
