Review: Rockin’ the Weekend!

Don’t know about where you live, but in our neck of the woods summer’s here and it’s hot.  Best thing to do on the weekend is hit the pool or lounge on the patio, pop the top on a cold one and put on a few fresh hot platters.

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are a Vermont-based band that’s been knocking around for a few years.  Their newest, simply titled Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, is a good calling card for those unfamiliar with the band’s take on 1970s style rock, soul, blues and country.  The most arresting thing about the band is the frontwoman’s astounding voice – she can rock out in front of a guitar storm on “Paris” or “Medicine,” then she can credibly pull off pop gems like “Goodbye Kiss” or the Fleetwood-Mac flavored “Tiny Light.”  Potter even strikes a perfect singer/songwriter pose on the gentle anthem “Colors.”  This is a perfect summer record, with a great band playing behind an excellent singer in a style you thought you’d never hear again.
