mr. Gnome - " Night of the Crickets" New Video, Free Album Stream & NYC Tour Date
mr. Gnome (lowercase spelling and all) is a Cleveland duo of vocalist/guitarist Nicole Barille and drummer Sam Meister. Following the release of their newest album, Deliver This Creature, Barille and Meister have begun to draw some hefty musical comparisons: Cat Power, Portishead, Blonde Redhead, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down and Death Cab round out the list. The duo's newest video for "Night of the Crickets" is animalistic, a bit morbid and well, kind of creepy-- Barille's raspy female voice laid atop the somewhat psychedelic percussion of Meister works and keeps you listening. Also, when you have the "Sand People" from Star Wars make an appearance in your video, there is not much that can go wrong.
Check out mr. Gnome live:
09/04 Brooklyn, NY @ Union Hall
09/05 New York, NY @ Knitting Factory
