Art-rock duo Mr. Gnome is on a roll. 2011 saw the band release its third full-length, Madness In Miniature, which garnered much praise including a “Band To Watch” nod from Rolling Stone. And now in 2012, after finishing critically adored sets at SXSW, the husband-and-wife band has released a new digital 7″ called Softly Mad on El Marko.
 
Softly Mad includes two B-sides from the Madness In Miniature sessions and was recorded in the group’s basement studio during a dark Cleveland winter. Mr. Gnome will be continuing on its spring tour up to May. Check out the tracklist for Softly Mad, tour dates and the awesome trailer for the band’s upcoming video for “House Of Circles” below.
