Guitar addicts will need to look elsewhere: Leaves Russell doesn't carry a typical six-string in its arsenal. Rather, the Portland four-piece is fueled by lead singer Matthew Russell's piano and Thacher Schmid's mini string section, which includes violin, mandolin, and viola. (Bassist Isaac Medina and drummer Jackson Conrad round out the ensemble). Leaves Russell's first full-length, We Chose the Devil Red, is a moody, almost proggy collection of reflective songs, and what it lacks in buoyancy it makes up for with an almost bloodlust-y sense of the macabre. The darker tunes are usually the best on We Chose the Devil Red, but whichever ones they play at tonight's record release show, they're bound to connect with you in unexpected places. NED LANNAMANN
