The Hosemobile picture
The Hosemobile biography
Tough foursome from Tennessee that do atmospheric and raw mathematics, with guitarists Rob Ring and Jeremy Averitt, bassist Cain Blanchard and drummer/vocalist Tige Casey. THE HOSEMOBILE takes inspiration from the early forms of mathrock such as STEVE ALBINI's SHELLAC but also the heavy definition of DON CAB.

Their second album, 'What Can and Can't Go On' (1999), stands as a prime example of a music still in its childhood but with adolescence well on its way, and the unexpected merging of the grimy with the cerebral.

An important if stark Math band, THE HOSEMOBILE made a small but appreciated statement in the development of the form.

Review by Atavachron
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

2 stars No-nonsense Tennessee math quartet's debut from 1999 is a stunner-- a brave, messy stompdown with tireless endurance and Don Cab compulsions. Frankly I would recommend this album to no one, not a soul. It's a thoughtless, destructive gnash of perpetuated rhythms and strange preoccupations... downright petrified, this one. It's also really interesting and, even among the mess of screeches and scrawls, there's a musicality that somehow comes through. A touch more melodic than much mathrock and not quite as cold, the Hosemobile are akin to a very talented group of sixteen year-olds having a great time discovering what can be done with just a few instruments in a cellar somewhere deep in the American south. 'Heat Swome' plods a bit and can be disjointed but 'Her Hand' is more focused in a familiar math vein with some very cool changes and tempo alterations. A raw production here, you can hear the instruments for what they are, no modifications and few effects. 'Conglaciation' is yet a further improvement on pace and composition, a very nice cut of pure American mathrock, the band never revealing whether it's all intentional or made-up as they go. 8-minute bubbling Hendrix soup 'Gym', the spidery minimalism of 'Digger' builds gradually, and 24-minute behemoth 'Spinning Engine' is garage ambition of the highest order. Incessantly resourceful stuff, and it's nice someone has the guts to do it.
