Out on September 22nd, again via the Wild Kingdom label, is the all new album by the Swedish melancholic synthpop act The Mobile homes. “Tristesse” comes two years after their last album “Trigger”. One of the tracks on the new album also features a guest appearance by Bon Harris (Nitzer Ebb).

The album will be out on vinyl and CD, and the CD contains the bonus-track “When Everything is alright”, which is not included on the vinyl version.

The Mobile Homes was formed in 1984, and have since then been active in various constellations. The band’s been collaborating with Julian Beeston (Nitzer Ebb), and Denniz Pop, Karl Bartos (ex Kraftwerk) amongst others. The band has been signed under many labels. It started with Papa Records, but that company didn’t last for long, so they had to search for a new label. Later they changed record company again, and this time they signed up with Hawk Records. At Hawk they released the albums “Hurt” remixed by Denniz Pop, “Nothing But Something” produced by Christian Falk, “Test” produced by Julian Beeston (Nitzer Ebb) and “Meanwhile”.

After a long break they signed under the German company SPV GmbH, and in Sweden under Arcade/CNR. Together with the ex Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos they released the album “Mobile Homes” in 1998. The radio picked up the track “You Make the Sun Shine”, and it was later used in a commercial for the airline SAS.

At Subspace Comunications they released the album “The World Will Listen”, with the singles “Nostalgia” and “The More I Think the Deeper I Sink”. “The World Will Listen” was recorded in the legendary Polar Studios, formerly owned by ABBA. In May 2003 Mobile Homes signed under BMG Sweden and released an EP produced by Sami Sirviö from Swedish band kent and Stefan Boman. In 2009 they released “Today Is Your Lucky Day” on Megahype Records, it was produced by Sami Sirviö.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
