The Mother Hips

When: Sat., Jan. 10, 9 p.m. 2015

As a band that's been making music since 1991, The Mother Hips have such a vast catalog that it was inevitable that some of the material wouldn't make it to an album right away. But lucky for fans of the San Francisco psych-rock band—founded by vocalists/guitarists Tim Bluhm and Greg Loiacono—The Mother Hips decided to pull back the curtain of time on some of their older, previously unreleased material. After discovering a stack of dusty tapes in a basement, they sifted through the songs—written during a particularly prolific creative period in the mid-'90s—and selected 11 tracks to include on a new/old album, Chronicle Man, released in summer 2014. The album spans breezy pop-rock ("Desert Song") and hazy, guitar-heavy '70s rock ("El Pancho Villa"), all components of a signature style that The Mother Hips term "California soul."
