Grace Potter & the Nocturnals "Mr. Columbus"

This is Somewhere, released yesterday (August 7th), has been sitting on my desk for a few weeks now, and I've been delaying and delaying and delaying on posting on it now that I've heard the whole album (see previous post). Then this morning "Mr. Columbus" happened to come up on shuffle, and I knew I had to post on it. If Nothing But the Water was an album about self-realization, then This is Somewhere is concerned with redemption. In "Mr. Columbus" the somewhere to reach is the edge of the world (maybe it's flat?), and The Nocturnals weld steely guitars with Grace Potter's soulful, bluesy vocals. Fans of KT Tunstall, this is for you.
(Update: I removed "Mr. Columbus" per request, but now am posting a live version that I think does the song justice)
