The Mother Hips - Red Tandy EP Review
by Gary Schwind

"Red Tandy" is quite a musical mélange, particularly since it comes in at only two minutes and eighteen seconds. The song begins with the sort of southern guitar riff that you'd find in an old song by the Marshall Tucker Band. Add to that lead vocals reminiscent of David Bowie and harmony vocals similar to the Beatles and what you've got is "Red Tandy." The only problem with the song is that it's too short. As soon as you start to feel the groove, the song is over.

"Colonized" has a definite classic rock feel and contains some social commentary that could have been written by Ray Davies. "Give away everything. Then someone picks it up and sells it back to you, and sells it back to me." I like it a lot. But maybe I'm just a sucker for social commentary.

"Blue Tomorrow" is another interesting song that's difficult to classify. The bass is more prominent than in the other songs and the guitar sounds like a hybrid of psychedlia and alt-country, maybe a bit like Grandaddy.

This is a good EP, although it may be more accurate to call it a maxi-single. With four songs that come in just under fifteen minutes, The Hips give you just enough to leave you wanting more.
