Album Review:: The Mother Hips "Kiss the Crystal Flake"

The Mother Hips released their new record Kiss The Crystal Flake a couple of days ago. It is their first full length since 2001. The album draws its influences from various sources including some of the best acts from the sixties like The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Gene Clark, Neil Young, and a few from the seventies, to create their own version of Californian soul. The record is full of really nice riffs and unexpected melodies bound to draw you into the music. The more you listen to this record, the more likely you are to find something you enjoy. My favorite track is Let Somebody, which has a chorus reminiscent of something Todd Rundgren might have written in the seventies.

I have put the first single Time Sick Son of a Grizzly Bear and Let Somebody on the player.
