[COASTING NO MORE] On multiple occasions, WW contributors have categorized the Mother Hips as “West Coasting,” an amusing reference to the Bay Area outfit’s jam-band draw and lengthy intervals between proper studio albums over the last two decades. But the arrival of long-rumored Behind Beyond, the troupe’s eighth album, finds the band far from cruising. The Golden State aesthetics—the folky surf guitar, gleaming harmonies and grizzled-hippie narratives—still return after the four-year dry spell, but it’s more akin to early ’70s roots rock than the straight-countrified or psychedelic meanderings of previous efforts. And while frontman Tim Bluhm and the rest of the Hips occasionally have their off nights, it’s simply nice to see the retrospective collections have ceased.
