about

From www.rackandruinrecords.com:

Whereas many other Rack & Ruin artists seem to gather the hype, Yorkshire, England's Gnomefoam has quietly been gathering his own following who will be delighted to hear the latest release from the cut and paste specialist.

Like fellow electronic experimentalists on the label, Gnomefoam has never been short of ambition, spontaneity and invention. This, his second full length, is perhaps his most coherent and experimental release to date. Mixing triphop, drum 'n bass, and electro pop with breathtaking ease. Gelling the styles together with a unique raw energy that is bound to win him new fans.

The heavy bass, the pounding drums, and the voice samples are still staple in Gnomefoam's music palette, but it is perhaps the 'extras' that will warm the listener more. The unexpected classical twist on "Maximum Chuffage" will render you with a bemused smile, only to be left mouth gaping when the track dissolves into a drum hungry dance anthem.

It is the unexpected that has always been key to Gnomefoam's continuous growth, and yet, two albums and a handful of EPs in, the twists will continue to shock and surprise.

Gnomefoam has managed to deliver yet another imaginative, vivid release, and if justice is to be served, then it should escalate him from his small cult following, to an army of willing ears.
