Ticket Giveaway - Show Preview - Mr Gnome - Brillobox - 10.8.11 - Concert Preview

If you follow the blog over the last couple of years, you know we are big fans of Mr Gnome out of Cleveland. We have featured them in the past here, here and here. Thankfully they are making their way back to the Brillobox this Saturday, 10.8. We are giving away a pair of tickets to the show. All you need to do is email us at pghmusicreport@gmail.com with your name to enter.

Mr Gnome is touring behind their upcoming release, Madness in Minature. As with their previous release Heave Yer Skeleton, the album was produced again in Josh Homme's (QOSTA, Eagles of Death Metal) Pink Duck Studio in LA. The album is described as .."an all-encompassing gaze into two delicate yet roaring, and hypnotic minds that are simultaneously disconcerting... in a beautiful way". I have only been able to listen to the new album once and can say it's pretty phenomenal on first listen.

I will hopefully get an interview with the duo soon for future posting this week, but from our last one:

Josh Homme helped create your last record. What was that experience like? Was there areas where he was suggesting that you didn’t feel fit the concept of your album?

We actually got invited to Josh's studio by his studio manager, Justin Smith. Justin was wonderful. We were on the same page for the whole project and he really helped us capture the sounds that we were going for and introduced us to a lot of vintage gear that we never knew existed. We also shared a love for time travel, Battlestar Galactica, The Frogs, The Techno Viking, and Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. We love you Sanchez.
