Tijuana Hercules – Mudslod and The Singles – White Vinyl, LP, Skin Graft, 2021

Years in the making and featuring the talents of more than 20 musicians, Tijuana Hercules’s “Mudslod and the Singles” finds the band deep-diving into its patented “hillbilly trance” sound: an oxygen-depriving bouillabaisse of boundary-busting blues, spaghetti-strung grooves, and tangled psychedelic roots music. Features singer / guitarist John Vernon Forbes of Mount Shasta and a stunning roster of players culled from the ranks of Iron and Wine, Cheer-Accident, Califone, and The Hairy Patt Band.
