From Rolling Stone:
Best New Act: Midnight North
Growing up the son of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh, Grahame Lesh was exposed to plenty of great American music, but his band, Midnight North, takes the best parts of roots music and weaves them into a tapestry of rock and Americana. Onstage with vocalists and multi-instrumentalists Elliot Peck and Alex Jordan, and bassist Connor O’Sullivan, Lesh leads a group that just as easily sounds like Buckingham-Nicks era Fleetwood Mac in its soulful rock simplicity as it does a Dead outfit. The writhing blues progression of “Headline From Kentucky” allowed the group to show off its vocal harmonies and the frolicking rock tune “Everyday” featured Jordan’s country-jam Telecaster tones. “Miss M” was a cool blend of swamp-funk and gospel, and Midnight North’s cover of Blind Willie Johnson’s “Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning” began with a vaudevillian intro before sliding into a slinky torch-jazz feel.
