Russell Greenleaf is fond of bugs [according to his myspace influences: Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, and Hemiptera], but that isn't all I learned about him. He is also offbeat, eccentric, and can be slotted in the same DIY basement/bedroom/closet as the less pop-centric Ariel Pink. All the way from Hawaii comes Russell Greenleaf with his guitar, synth, drums, bass, vocals, and lo-fi pop.
+ phosporus jaw
+ coke pepsi
+ the mason ring
+ bolevarde trees (a climax species)
Many of these songs can be streamed on his myspace page - go there to listen to "Vegetable Mould".
