Ambition is a wonderful force in every strata of life, and Leaf doesn’t hesitate to make their broad ambitions known on Made Into Itself. This particular blend of instrumentally symphonic beats takes the spirit of Anticon. and runs with it. Every song reinforces the existential woes of work and the absurdity of materialism in the tradition of the great Sole and Sage Francis. Although not remarkably original, Leaf’s experimentation with cello, acoustic guitar and other instruments makes their motivated compositions fiercely interesting.
