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.
