Description:
Audio Mixer: Andrew Scheps. Recording information: Westlake Recording Studios, Los Angles, CA. Photographer: Adrien Broom. For five years, Grace Potter & Nocturnals have been hammering it out on stages large and small, playing 200 shows a year, and impressing audiences in the U.S. They've recorded two previous albums -- 2005's rightfully acclaimed Nothing But the Water, and their Hollywood Records debut This Is Somewhere. The sophomore effort failed musically; its songs were unfocused and sloppy, and its production lethargic. Three years later, with two new bandmembers in bassist Catherine Popper and rhythm guitarist Benny Turco, and the aid of super producer Mark Batson (Jay-Z, Snoop Dog, Beyonc?, Alicia Keys), the Nocturnals sound like a band reinvigorated. This self-titled set is very polished -- from cover photo to last note it's designed to scale the Billboard charts -- yet it offers a representative showcase of the band's strengths. And while it doesn't come off as spontaneously as their live gigs, it's not supposed to. The glammed-up Nocturnals are still a tough, few-frills rock band, and despite his pedigree, Batson -- who co-wrote six of 13 songs with Potter here -- gets that. "Paris" kicks off the set. It's introduced by a mean grunt from Potter, and a twin guitar blast. With Scott Tournett's lead guitar slicing through Matt Burr's drums, and Popper's funky bassline, the singer -- with power and pitch -- lays down the brazen lyric: "If I was a man, I'd make my move/If I was a blade I'd shave you smooth . . . " On "Medicine," another rocker, Potter stakes claim to her man though she's competing with a mysterious seductress. The riff and refrain are instantly memorable. The dual guitar leads are balanced by her B-3, and the tune's bluesy feel is seductive. "Hot Summer Night" is a nasty roots jam with Potter beating the hell out of an upright piano over trashy guitars and handclaps ? la the Faces. "Low Road," influenced deeply by Memphis soul, puts Potter'...

Editorial Reviews:
Rolling Stone (p.78) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The Nocturnals' third disc tilts from Janis Joplin-esque bluster, to laid-back singer-songwriter soul..." Billboard (p.32) - "[T]he band displays its versatility, channeling modern soul with funky guitar and organ on 'Only Love' and getting a country makeover on slow shuffles 'Low Road' and 'Things I Never Needed.'" Paste (magazine) - "Heavy on the breathing, lipstick and Betty Boop squeaks, opener 'Paris (Ooh La La)' sets the LP's tone as Potter howls over a synthetic groove..." Uncut (magazine) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] struts and sneers with effortless confidence....Potter's expressive voice leads the charge..."
