Having seen alternative rocker Grace Potter jam out with Daryl Hall on Live from Daryl’s House earlier this year and most recently on VH1’s Storytellers, hearing The Lion the Beast the Beat was a must.

Based in Vermont, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals’ fourth album is an amalgam of “big riffs and bellowing vocals”—basically, an eclectic project with no specific genre in mind. Whether intentional or not, The Lion does stay somewhere along the pop-rock-country lane.

Potter, a multi-instrumentalist, has large vocal abilities and an almost cult following, so one does feel the tug of commercial success calling. Standout moments include “Never Go Back” and “Timekeeper” for their transparency.
