music // heartless bastards

the heartless bastards are anything but. erika wennerstrom fronts the group, originally from ohio (go buckeyes), and you wouldn't think it to look at her, but the huge voice she possesses is compelling, soulful, utterly unique, and pretty damn rockin'.

i almost passed on the opportunity to go see them last night at dan's silverleaf in denton because it was a work night, they weren't playing until almost midnight, i'm old now, yada, yada, yada. i'm glad i was exhausted today. totally worth it.

if i had to classify their genre, i'd say indie-country-blues-rock and that's about as specific as i can get. it's a great sound, so listen up if you've never heard them! (you know... if you want)
