The vivacious vocalist Grace Potter leads this American rock band originally formed in 2002. The Lion The Beast The Beat is the band’s fourth studio album released this year and is certainly their most slick, notably collaborating with The Black Key’s Dan Auerbach on much of the album. The band has a retro seventies quality and Potter’s vocal has the energy of Janis Joplin but the strong soulfulness of Stevie Nicks. So basically, she rocks!
I love the driving title track, the glam rock ‘Turntable’ and their new soundtrack-y single ‘Stars’.
The Lion The Beast The Beat is out now on iTunes
