Free MP3 Of The Day: Grace Potter Takes You To “Paris”
Our good friends at MP3.com just relaunched, and to celebrate, we’re helping them give away some of today’s best songs for free, every day for a month. Today’s featured free download is [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Grace Potter[/lastfm]’s “Paris.”
In just five years, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals have gone from a local Vermont band to one of the fastest rising rock bands around, and with a listen to “Paris (Ooh La La),” the opening track to their new self-titled album, one can easily see why.
Ms. Potter’s voice is impressive – equal parts power and pitch – and she exudes attitude. “If I was a man, I’d make my move/If I was a blade I’d shave you smooth” she sings to the object of her affection. The track has a tough bluesy sound to it, with nice interplay between the dual guitars and a propulsive rhythm from drummer Matt Burr.
Grace Potter & the Nocturnals’ new album has been garnering a lot of attention for the band. Produced by super-producer Mark Batson (who has done work for the likes of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyoncé[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Alicia Keys[/lastfm]), Grace Potter & the Nocturnals captures all the band’s groove, strut and swing.
