mr. Gnome

Unless we're talking about Gilgamesh or Faith No More's big hit single, the word "epic" should be given its denotative due and used sparingly. Still, it's hard to think of a better word to describe what mr. Gnome is after on its latest album, Madness in Miniature. The Cleveland-based duo (Nicole Barille on guitar and vocals and Sam Meister on drums) makes a big, knotty, righteous sound with a few parts. "House of Circles" moves from a breakbeat rhythm and Barille's disembodied vox to Black Mountain-esque levels of martial heaviness and whip-smart riffage. If the word "epic" is off the table, then words like "badass" will have to suffice.

GnomeTV: If the song "House of Circles" suggests its own little universe, it's nothing compared to the batshit video that mr. Gnome made for it — picture a green-screened steampunk fairy tale mixed with live-action anime, and you're a quarter of the way there.
