The Mother Hips have flown under the radar as true indie music pioneers for two decades. Hailed by critics for their “rootsy mix of 70s rock and power pop” (pitchfork.com) and for their unflinching ability to “sing it sweet and play it dirty” (New Yorker), The Hips’ signature sound rings more genuine and relevant than ever before.
The Hips – led by co-founders Tim Bluhm (vocals/guitar) and Greg Loiacono (guitar/vocals) – have been playing music for 20 years, and in the process, have had the luxury of exploring and refining their craft. And have never been more primed to share their well-traveled tales – the long days and nights on the road, the gritty politics, the smart inward reflections and man, the music! – all delivered with a most appealing balance of Americana storytelling and their California-burnished rock.
Flowmotion has dominated the Northwest live music scene for over 10 years, garnering thousands of fans throughout the entire West Coast region via relentless touring and as host of their very successful music festival, Summer Meltdown (held every August in Darrington ,WA) In December, Flowmotion announced it would be retiring the band name and reemerging as The True Spokes. The Winter Warm Up is the official True Spokes album release party. The new album was co produced by The True Spokes and The Mother Hips’ Tim Bluhm and features performances by both Tim & Nicki Bluhm (Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers).
