Anyone on the market for some unadulterated vintage rock and roll should give Trigger Hippy's self-titled LP a spin as fast as possible.
Trigger Hippy is a tour de force collaboration of established rock heroes. The group was created by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, who is joined by Joan Osborne and Jackie Greene on dual vocals, Tom Bukovac on guitars, and Nick Govrik on bass. Trigger Hippy, the quintet's full-length, self-titled debut, has the homey feel of a great classic rock record.
From the minute the electric organ and bluesy guitar riff kicks in at the beginning of "Rise Up Singing", the music retains the same feeling of warm nostalgia that comes from turning on your favorite FM classic rock station.
Trigger Hippy is out on September 30th through Rounder.
