Mr Gnome
The Heart of a Dark Star

 

Masked ghouls prowl through the eerie technicolor dreams of lost children.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

Ever since hearing their 2009 release Heave Yer Skeleton, Mr. Gnome has been a band I’ve followed closely. They’re incredibly hard to describe. They’re a duo, but they definitely don’t sound like one. Songs range from heavy fuzzed out stoner rock to eerie children’s sing-a-longs. Singer Nicole Barille’s voice has a oddly cutesy quality that provides a haunted youthfulness to even their heaviest moments. The Heart of a Dark Star may be their most ambitious album to date. It’s a sonic blender with hints of gospel chants and psychedelic excursions, but never once could it be mistaken for another band.
