Last year Rolling Stone called this Vermont-based band one of the country's top new acts, this year the magazine just calls them one of the best.

The band will be taking hits like "Paris (Ooh la la)" to Lollapalooza, the big festival in Chicago later this summer. And to top it off, Grace even has a candy bar named after her, it's called the Grace Under Fire.

Grace Potter told Here & Now's Robin Young that the group really gelled on their latest album, which is self-titled.

“This record is the first time it’s really been us — the first time we’ve all found each other and ourselves," she said. "Everybody was totally comfortable, everything we had was sitting right in front of us, and it just poured out of us.  The whole thing was fluid and effortless. In my mind, an album shouldn’t be self-titled unless it feels that way.”
