Listen To The Mother Hips Cover Buffy St. Marie’s “Codine” And Catch Them On Tour

Bay Area Rock band The Mother Hips have just released their new album, When We Disappear, today on Blue Rose. Thirty years in, still defying specific genres, the band is experiencing a creative surge that continues to develop their West Coast sound, which includes Cosmic Country and Beach Boys Psychedelia. They also recently covered Buffy St. Marie’s “Codine”.

The Hips headed to New Mexico, spending time at Ghost Ranch before settling in at Jono Manson’s Kitchen Sink Studio in Sante Fe in late 2021 for the album sessions. Self-Produced, When We Disappear features nine new tracks co-written by co-founders Tim Bluhm and Greg Loiacono. The tracks were inspired by psychology and literature. 

The Hips have shared stages with everyone from Johnny Cash and Wilco to Lucinda Williams and The Black Crowes. The Hips have announced a run of tour dates and festivals, including the band’s own annual “Hipnic”.
