Well, it’s almost September now. Aside from cooler air, I’ve been looking forward to this month because tons of great bands are set to play in Philadelphia. I’m really excited to see Grace Potter and the Nocturnals who I’ve listened to for a long time now, but have never gotten the chance to check out live.
Their past record was especially great. Rolling Stone described it as “tilt[ing] from Janis Joplin-esque bluster, to laid-back singer-songwriter soul that recalls a toughened-up Norah Jones.” I couldn’t have said it better. The vocals will be raspy and in-your-face for songs like Medicine Man, and then in numbers like Tiny Light they become much softer and hopeful. Taking you through all different moods and styles, there’s a bit of something for everyone.
A band who definitely knows how to rock out in recordings, and from what I hear, is just as great at doing it live. I can’t wait to check out their concert.
Listen to their self-titled album here.
