Mr. Gnome: Mr. Gnome

Mr. Gnome's self-titled second release is just an EP, but it's one helluva big, sexy record. Even if it didn't boast singer Nicole Barille's orgasmic delivery, Gnome's offbeat fusion of stoner metal and trip-hop could boil blood. "Truffle Shuffle" opens the affair with metal-plated blues plucking, while drummer Sam Meister shifts styles with fierce abandon. Damn, these songs are beyond dynamic; beat barrages explode unannounced as quiet oblivion ends in sudden full-frontal assaults. And the psychedelic meltdown "Barb's Revenge" is a dish best served now.
