Swedish prog-rock outfit Radiomobel recorded their cult-hit Tramseböx in a shady basement somewhere, and you can definitely hear it. And that’s a great thing, because the recording style perfectly matches the paranoid jams that these guys. Finally back on vinyl, but limited to 350 copies total.

Prog rock from a basement? Is that allowed? Maybe I’m just used to the most annoying genre being a high-definition affair for maximum obnoxiousness -- this record starts with lo-fi cowbell, and those are two words I never thought I’d sequence together. Radiomobel are a Swedish psychedelic team with speedbump structures and widespread ideas, though they mostly have to contain their hyper-active minds to the usual dingy mix of guitars, bass ‘n’ drums. So basically: garage rock pertaining to be prog makes ‘Tramsebox’, and let’s all have a good time.
A lot of soloing carries Radiomobel through the bits they haven’t come prepared for, which is varyingly pretty and meandering, peaking in its sorta-goodness on “Vi Hatar Stenar”. Thankfully the band veer to the succinct side of prog and keep their detours brief -- there’s a biscuit-bite feel to the long slogs of solos that take up the second side, which are often met with basslines worthy of a detective show. It’s hard rock done on limited time with budget production; easy to imagine and worthy of your enjoyment.
