Portland, Oregon-based artist Leigh Marble celebrates the national release of Where The Knives Meet Between The Rows today.   The album is a ten-track follow-up to Red Tornado, which Portland alternative weekly Willamette Week proclaimed “a burning, angst folk-rock masterpiece.”   Further extending beyond the pop-rock and folk of Red Tornado, Where The Knives Meet Between The Rows delves deeper into an indie-fied spectrum of soundscapes and experimentation, without losing the lyrical depth or sonic power of Marble’s previous work.   Willamette Week said of the album, “…the folk-tinged troubadour bends his signal genre well away from the self-styled punk Americana of his early efforts to embrace big-chorused indie pop and swaggering guitar rock, all of which meshes surprisingly well with his more introspective musings.”

The album features guest appearances by longtime friend Erin McKeown, and local Portland musicians Jesse Emerson (Amelia, The Decemberists), Matt Harmon & Kali Giaritta (of The Ascetic Junkies), and Rachel Taylor-Brown.
