The Mother Hips
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
Twenty-five years into a celebrated career is an unlikely time to switch things up, but the divinely inspired (Rolling Stone) Mother Hips have never been ones to follow convention. For their brilliant and exhilarating tenth album, Chorus, the California stalwarts turned their recording process on its head in order to make their most fully realized and essential collection yet. Originally signed by Rick Rubin while still just students at Chico State, The Mother Hips have spent two-and-a-half decades at the forefront of a new breed of California rock and rollone equally informed by the breezy harmonies of the Beach Boys, the funky roots of The Band, and the psychedelic Americana of Buffalo Springfieldand established themselves as one of the Bay Areas most beloved live outfits (San Francisco Guardian) through countless headline shows, massive festival appearances, and dates with everyone from Johnny Cash and Wilco to Lucinda Williams and The Black Crowes. The New Yorker lauded the bands ability to sing it sweet and play it dirty, and Chorus is perhaps the finest example yet of that intoxicating dichotomy, a richly melodic album firmly rooted in gritty rock and roll with the kind of evocative storytelling that The Mother Hips do best.
