mr. Gnome:: Deliver This Creature

Cleveland’s mr. Gnome arose from the ashes of a basement with Nicole Barille and Sam Meister experimenting with a sound based on minimalist instrumentation and the rules of soft vs. loud and masculine vs. feminine. Within a year, the two released their first EP, Echoes On The Ground, and they toured the United States living out of a van and sleeping on random couches for the second part of 2007. With a handful of new material in their set list, Nicole and Sam used practice spots along the way to complete the writing of their new creation and by the force of their journey, discovered both Larry Crane’s Jackpot Studios (Elliott Smith, Cat Power, The Shins, The Decemberists) in Portland, Oregon and Craig Schumacher’s Wavelab Studios (Calexico, DeVotchka, Neko Case, Animal Collective) in Tucson, Arizona where they recorded their first full-length album with engineers Kendra Lynn, and Chris Schultz.
