Bet against the Band of Heathens at your own risk. The Austin supergroup may have enough songwriting, singing and instrumental chops to fuel a dozen different bands, but cohesion and camaraderie remain its aces in the hole.

Led by the songwriting team of Colin Brooks, Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist (all of whom have released solo albums), the Heathens have made their mark on both the Americana charts and the well-fed (and liquored) Texas music scene. With the 2011 album Top Hat Crown & the Clapmaster's Son, the group pulls out all the neo-jam, gospel blues, folk rock and country soul stops, sounding at times like a cross between Little Feat and vintage Derek and the Dominos. The band previewed songs from the album (due out at the end of March 2011) during this encore in-studio session. Listen to the band's 2010 session here.
