Since 1999, San Diego songwriter Jimmy LaValle has built an impressive musical legacy for the ALBUM LEAF by merging autumnal, post-rock atmospheres with layers of jazz, classical music inflections and earnest electronic textures. His latest release, A Chorus of Storytellers (Sub Pop), revels in subtle melodies and drum-machine textures while furthering the group's reach into experimental ambiance. Los Angelean songwriter Sea Wolf, née Alex Church, opens with a set of songs from his lauded '09 release, White Water, White Bloom (Dangerbird). $13-$15. 9 p.m. The Loft, 1374 W.
