Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers first snuck beyond the mellowed-out Americana camp with their Van Sessions on YouTube, where they covered everything from Linda Ronstadt’s “You’re No Good” to Deniece Williams’ “Let’s Hear It for the Boy.” Since then, their version of Hall and Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” has received more than two million views, and the band recently landed a performance on Conan. The Gramblers, which include Bluhm’s husband Tim of the Mother Hips, make their own music, too. Their latest self-titled LP is filled with rootsy, ’70s-AM pop that nestles somewhere between the Band and Fleetwood Mac. It sounds like they’ve found their niche, but between the spotless musicianship and the emergence of Nicki Bluhm as a commanding frontwoman, it looks as though the sky’s the limit. MARK LORE
