Leaves of Life - Various Artists Compilation feat. Devendra Banhart, Alela Diane, Arborea, Marissa Nadler, etc.
Originally released 23, June 2009 on Borne!
(c) 2017 Obsolete Recordings

AllMusic Review -
Released as a benefit album for the UN's food aid agency, Leaves of Life was assembled and produced by Buck Curran of the alt-folk duo Arborea and issued by his own Borne! Records imprint. It features 19 songs by contemporary folk artists, and includes some moodily interesting cuts like Alela Diane and Mariee Sioux's ethereal version of "The Cuckoo," Devendra Banhart's sparse, epic-sounding "Hotel St. Sebastian," David Garland's hyper-aware "Splinter Heart," and Citay's "Little Kingdom," among others. It's all pretty low-key and atmospheric, and at times self-consciously hushed in tone. Call it chill-out folk.
