A Great Big Pile of Leaves – Pono

Release Date: August 13, 2021

Label: Topshelf Records

After releasing their first two records in 2010 and 2013, A Great Big Pile of Leaves went on hiatus. Pono picks right back up where they left off. Wistful musings on adolescence abound. Cue Hit Reset. It’s full of simple auditory pleasures. Beat Up Shoes is a highlight that recalls in post-curfew cruises and the mechanics of leaping from upper-story windows. On Waiting For Your Love, a swaying, plaintive core gets louder and more emphatic in its final minute, and for a moment the band indulges in a wall of sound, filling in the hollowed-out space that the rippling cymbals carved out.
