Grace Potter and the Nocturnals grew up in the jamband scene, making stops at nearly every major festival each summer. While their most recent self-titled album shot them toward more mainstream success, the Nocturnals stay true to their jamband fans by paying tribute to influential bands. The band has covered Jefferson Airplane, Otis Redding, Fleetwood Mac, and even teased Phish.
While on tour with My Morning Jacket, Jim James must have rubbed off on the band. Here, the Nocturnals cover My Morning Jacket’s stunningly beautiful “Golden.” Potter’s voice gives the song a totally different tone than does Jim James, and paired with slide guitar, it makes for a phenomenal cover choice.
