You know you’re getting old when an album you specifically remember the release of is about to get re-issued as a “cult classic.”

Josephine Foster’s topsy-turvy folk-rock opus with backing band The Supposed didn’t make much of a splash when it hit the shelves in 2004, but since then has become regarded as one of the finest moments of the mid-zeros New Weird America movement.

On November 29, British label Fire Records will reissue said album, All The Leaves Are Gone, on vinyl as well as digitally.

Drawing comparisons to English folk revivalist Shirley Collins and the progressive freak-folk of Mellow Candle, Foster’s album was noted for its operatic touches and extravagant guitar improvisation. Since its release, Foster has maintained a rather prolific career in music, including frequent collaborations with her husband Victor Herrero.
