The Mother Hips

Original California soul since 1991 is what Mother Hips is all about.

With the release of their eighth studio album, Behind Beyond, via their own imprint label on July 9,
2013; Northern California’s the Mother Hips will celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band. This album follows
their 2009 studio release, Pacific Dust, and a four-disc retrospective compilation, Days of Sun and Grass, both
of which garnered critical praise from outlets including The New Yorker, Mojo, Relix, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork
and cemented the band’s reputation as creators of “California Soul.” Co-founded by principal songwriter/lead
vocalist Tim Bluhm and guitarist/vocalist Greg Loiacono, the Mother Hips has spawned its own community and
even its own rock festival, Hipnic. Held at Big Sur, Hipnic is now in its fifth year and has featured like-minded
California bands including Cass McCombs, Jackie Greene, Al Jardine, Neal Casal, Dawes and others.
