Mr. Gnome
Mr. Gnome
Inspired by a taste for the surreal, Cleveland's Mr. Gnome has been creating a singular amalgam of gritty, space-psychedelia since 2005, gaining them an ever-growing cult following across North America and Europe, as well as praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Paste, Spin, Bust, and more. With a nod to the off-kiltered, the constantly touring duo are set to release their third full-length album, Madness In Miniature, October 25th on El Marko Records. While the previous two albums offered mere glimpses, the new album is an all-encompassing gaze into two delicate yet roaring, hypnotic yet beautifully disconcerting minds that come together to make sense as one.

Singer/guitarist Nicole Barille and drummer/pianist Sam Meister bring an unfiltered approach to their craft, allowing for emotional and sonic variance. The duo's mood swings are mirrored by the band's surreal album artwork and music videos, all created by Barille and Meister themselves. Madness in Miniature twists from soft lullabies to interstellar chaos. The intricately woven musical tapestries and hallucinogenic interludes pounded out by the duo represent an expansion and perfection of the stylistic character Mr. Gnome had previously become synonymous with.

Like the previous album Heave Yer Skeleton (2009), the new record was recorded at Josh Homme's (Queens of the Stone Age/Them Crooked Vultures) Pink Duck Studios in Los Angeles. The Madness in Miniature sessions signal the band's second opportunity to partner with Pink Duck Studio Manager and Engineer, Justin Smith (QOTSA, Eagles of Death Metal, Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures). Portland's Beau Sorenson, who mixed the previous two albums, is back as well.
The Birds of Night
The Birds of Night
Birds of Night is a band that make nostalgically glazed Rock and Roll. Their songs are made from sun-drenched guitars, reverberating vocals, and loosely tightened drums.

They fit nicely with bands like Tennis, Ty Segall, Beach Fossils, and The Walkmen.

Birds of Night's latest record "We're a Family Now" was made in the spirit of great song writing and performance. It was recored and mixed with help from Eric Pulido and McKenzie Smith of the notable Denton band Midlake. The album has since been heralded as one of the best releases from DFW this year by the influential Dallas blog Central Track. Their music has been featured in Monster Diesel Vektr Headphones displays across the country, and featured in several videos by the popular website Buzzfeed. Their debut album "Snaps" was one of the top ten DFW albums of the year by Mark Schectman of 102.1 KDGE The Edge.

In the past year, Birds of Night have opened for Tennis, Mac Demarco, Diarrhea Planet, and The Love Language.


"...catchy and unrelentingly cool, deftly merging techniques and tones from the past and future." - Cory Graves Centraltrack.com

" It's jangly garage rock mentality makes it seem like a gem in the midst of the fools gold that floods the airwaves." - Leah Lovecat, Dingusonmusic.com

The Birds of Night ditched a bunch of elaborate electronic gear and stuck to a bass, drum and guitar formula, paying homage to rock legends that came before them with their unexpectedly Doors-y, Creedence-y sound. " Rachel Watts, Dallas Observer
