Review: The Mother Hips

Kiss the Crystal FlakeThe latest Mother Hips album, Kiss The Crystal Flake, is so good I can hardly stop listening to it. It’s rousing and swoon-inducing by turns (especially if you close your eyes and visualize demi-god Tim Bluhm ;-) I’m in danger of overdosing on the ballad “Let Somebody.” I always did have a sweet tooth.

The Mother Hips are the epitome of California soul. If you don’t know them, catch an earful at their Web site.

Jim Trageser sums it up nicely in his review:

Good songs, solid playing – if you like accessible, guitar-based rock with sunny melodies and great vocal harmonies, it probably doesn’t matter how old you are: You’ll like the Mother Hips’ new album.
