From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

The Lion, The Beast, The Beat: The Nocturnals Come Back With A Roar

Time to taste some new sounds.

In a previous blog titled "Stop the Bus, A Taste of Grace," we've had just a sample of today's featured artist. Their new CD has just been released, so why not have a lick or two.  The band is Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and the CD is The Lion, The Beast, The Beat.

Grace Potter rocks. Just watch a few videos and you can see why the fan base around the Nocturnals grows every day. Grace has a strong voice, is very respectable with the guitar and keys... and let's just say she has great stage presence.

The new CD is available for a listen on Spotify, and at first listen a few tracks jump out. The title song sets the tone. Not a band to play it safe, with "The Lion..." the Nocs have created more of an anthem. It lives up to the name, it has the pride of a lion, the strength of a beast and...a great beat.

The first song released "Never Go Back" is smokey and sultry.

Taste a few more.

"Timekeeper" ...distinctive vocal by Grace, strong support by the Nocs
"The Divide"

Fifteen tracks...lots of fun. And definitely worth a look-see.
