    Leopold and his Fiction (Austin) with River Whyless (Asheville, N.C.) http://www.leopoldandhisfiction.com/ http://vimeo.com/57506270#at=0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJODHrH9iLo "Pimping a transcendent brand of powerful Garage Rock and Soul, Leopold and His Fiction is fronted by wild-eyed singer/guitarist Daniel James, whose live antics have resulted in a mix of high praise and stunned silence during the bands eccentric live shows. Rounded out by various friends picked up along the whirlwind touring route, theres a dangerous vibe to Leopold and His Fiction that has drawn comparison to Iggy Pops early hijinks with The Stooges, but its blistering soulfulness, psychedelic trippiness and glammy swagger create a mlange that is impossible to full describe in mere words. " -Mike Breen, CityBeat"Over a lovely acoustic, finger-picked accompaniment, River Whyless vocalist/guitarist Ryan OKeefe intones, Im not searching for perfect, Im perfecting my search, and thats the moving introduction to the bands powerful and beautiful debut album, 2012sA Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door. Halli Andersons violin and ethereal vocals give River Whyless a Chamber Folk feel, but the skilled rhythm section of bassist Dan Shearin and drummer Alex McWalters grounds the band regardless of the direction any given song takes them. The North Carolina quartet moves gracefully from traditional Folk structure to baroque gravity to heartstopping atmospherics without a hint of creative self-consciousness, an ability that shines through on their very first album and is reinforced night after night on the road. River Whyless makes ageless music for the here and now." -Brian Baker, CityBeat
