Anomalous Leaf

a humble, transcendent, and mostly
inadvertent take on cosmic art

this venture in sonic landscaping is
a cathartic retreat from the realm of popular conformist vibes,
taking on its own as a contrast to the ephemeral figments of
mainstream thoughts and process in unobtrusive fashion

anomalous leaf is the alias of musical and visual artist irfan azam

emitting from a household pseudo-studio amidst
the sprawling suburbs of peidmont north carolina since 2004,
the peal of his "experimental electro-acoustic ambient space rock”
is fickle like emotion: abstract, visceral, and typically
played out in spontaneity

the playing strays off-kilter, the melodies may not catch,
an off beat goes unchecked, "and the stars look down"

"Sonic vistas dripping silver honey with an Air of innocence provide the listener affordable space-time shortcuts through the ages. Pleasing, simple yet sophisticated riffs and chords dance in improbable harmonies against an arcadian canvas. A celebration of and homage to ethereal prog-psych-garage traditions lift the initiate to safe, happy landings on soft, lucid clouds of desolation. Lucha libre between Plato and Democritus ultimately results in laughing camaraderie and a sweet trip to the Mad Hatter's tea party! Light, reason and dreams intertwine to challenge confusion, ignorance and darkness. Awake, receive and recede into Ellipsis. Please."
