Established in Feb. 2009, LA-based dublab/Brainfeeder/Alpha Pup affiliate Matthewdavid, and visual artist Jesselisa Moretti curate Leaving Records and blog.

The subtle psychedelic of tape static and the bombastic boom-clack from all walks of life are embraced in an experimental and unique music label model that gives listeners an invitation to explore beyond the limits of genre boundaries of which some are described as ambient-collage, experimental beat-ish, and hi-five, lo-fi.

Leaving offers most of their releases via digital download but all physical releases are strictly limited edition, are put out mainly on cassette, and just a handful on CD-R. Limited edition indeed, some of the physical releases offer bonus track not available for download. The cover art is often of collectable quality and hand made, ranging from art booklets, silk screened images, and one of a kind collages produced by the artists themselves.
