AT LONG LAST AND JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS… A NEW MOTHER HIPS RECORD!!
“The glowing lantern is a universal symbol for sanctuary. That’s what we wanted this album to be: a safe harbor in the storm.” – Tim Bluhm
“In some ways, making this record brought us right back to the early days when Tim and I used to live together. It brought us back to the roots of what this band was all about.” – Greg Loiacono
Read what the press has been saying:
Glowing Lantern doesn’t simply get back to the roots of what gave The Mother Hips a platform to launch a successful 30+ years run, it, arguably, more importantly gets back to the simplicity that makes us love music. Bringing warmth and comfort when we need it most, 2021 is going out with a high that will leave many who have already made their “Best Of 2021” kicking themselves for jumping the gun and not including this record. – Nanobot Rock
The band wrote and recorded the album last year during the pandemic with Bluhm and Loiacono serving as producers. The results reflect the many conflicting emotions that the world experienced during that moment in time.- Relix
Musically, the Hips are doing what they do best: there’s plenty of straight up rock ‘n’ roll, tinged with a dreamy California haze, and accentuated by judicious use of instrumentation like pedal steel. They wear their influences and rock traditions on their sleeves, playing it loose and limber, with a warm, live sound that often feels like a group of friends jamming out together. Glowing Lantern is a record that will hold up after the current crisis has passed, every bit as much as any of the other highlights of the band’s catalog. – Lyric Magazine
