Hips Hips Hooray!
The Mother Hips, one of Chico State’s great gifts to the world of pop, are not only still going strong more than three decades since forming on the college campus, co-founders Tim Bluhm and Greg Loiacono have another new album about to be released. When We Disappear, due January 27, comes hot on the heels of Glowing Lantern, which was written and recorded through the heart of the COVID pandemic to both grapple with the anxiety of and provide comfort during these troubling and uncertain times. Disappear, which was recorded in New Mexico,would appear to follow a similar strain, although their website calls it a collection of lit-psych rock songs inspired by psychology and literature. No doubt we’ll get a healthy preview when the Hips head to SOhO on December 2. The Coffis Brothers, a fellow NorCal roots rock-folk-blues band born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains, open the show.
