Hermon Hitson (from the album Let the Gods Sing available on Big Legal Mess Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
Hermon Hitson has dropped a 21st Century nod to classic Psychedelic Funk. As well he should, no better man for the job. Herman Hitson is a veteran of great OG American Funk, classic Rhythm & Blues, and the first wave of Psychedelic Rock. His latest release, Let the Gods Sing, is a spacey, engaging, and tripped out ride of fantastic funky fuzz. It’s great.
Hermon Hitson shoots for outer space right from the get-go, the title track opener stretching out. Taking its time as Herman Hitson shouts ‘let the gods sing’ over a trippy musical bed. “Back Door Man” is a Bluesy wanderer where Hitson brags of being a backdoor man ‘making that midnight creep’. “All I Want Is You” has a bouncy, sugary Rock flair, and “Suspicious” is a straight-up Boogie cut.
Let the Gods Sing closes with the short jams of “Stray Bullet” while “Yampertown Funk” is an instrumental that sounds like 1960, where funky horns drive old-school Rhythm & Blues. This whole record has a loose vibe that hangs on a thread, like Herman Hitson is leading a band that casually plays Funk riffs, Hermon chiming in on vocals wherever, and whenever, he feels a fit. It’s that casual and that laid back. A Funk record that drops loose, Psychedelia Funk rhythms with ease. Recorded in Memphis, Let the Gods Sing gives a great nod to all of the hip records that have come out of that city since the birth of southern Funk and R&B. (by Bryant Liggett)
