Listen to Leaver’s ‘Head Home’ new release and its grievous neo-folk themes
 We have some very interesting news about a Bulgarian project, namely Leaver, which is a drone duo formed by Angel Simitchiev (Mytrip, Dayin) and Daniel Donchov (Expectations). Leaver has recently released a new material on tape, “Head Home”, an album that can be described as a conglomeration of grievous musical themes. There are acoustic guitars that bring a wistful charm upon the listener’s perception, tempered vocals that seem to present a very sad state of mind and some amazing piano parts arranged by Stoimen Stoyanov. Although Leaver has the reputation of a drone project-band, “Head Home” is a neo-folk album featuring some minimal experimental inserts. 
 
 
Here are a few words from the creators of this delightful album: “’Head Home’ splits solitude in two and lives on the borderline between the pieces. It’s fragile like that moment when your silent talk is about to morph into warm silence. It’s where words and echoes become one, until meaning is lost and you’re disintegrating in the comfort of emptiness.”
 
 
 
“Head Home” was recorded by Mihail Slavov and mastered by Marius Costache at Studio 148. The release is available for streaming and buying on Leaver’s Bandcamp page and it can be purchased also as a cassette edition which is limited to 100 copies.
 

Below is the official descriptive text about the Leaver project.
 
The project is placed somewhere between lo-fi ambient and guitar based singer-songwriter music. Leaver has spent the past three years playing carefully selected gigs and live collaborations. These might finish in a breath or stretch longer in time, they might be quiet or loud but it’s always as if the music captured is dripping through the broken windows of lonely, long forgotten homes. In spring 2016 Leaver toured England to present ‘Head Home’.
