12 Minutes Max: Leland Leichman Mar 9, 2007

by Tania Kupczak

Leland Leichman writes about love, smeared on the walls of a bathroom stall. His life is his favorite movie: SCENE: A bedroom with an apple tree in it. CUT TO: the dog with two different colored eyes. Leland also sings and plays the guitar. His voice sounds like a cross between Mark Lanegan and Stephin Merritt, with a little Tom Waits thrown in. He's got one of those resonator guitars, I think the National tricone style, but I'm not really a guitar guy so I might be wrong. You can hear some of his songs on his myspace page: Posted by Rob Witmer
