About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: March 15, 2009
  • Artist / Band: Heartless Bastards
  • Hosting Show: Rocket 88
  • Sound: Jon Valley

Followers of Heartless Bastards crave the trio's blues-punk garage rock with its churning guitar, Erika Wennerstrom's distinctly rough voice and heartfelt lyrics. The band continues its stylistic journey on The Mountain. Will fans appreciate this evolution or deem it heartless? Decide for yourself via a live performance on Rocket 88.

On the 2009 release The Mountain, newly joined bassist Jesse Ebaugh and drummer Dave Colvin provide the band's customary stripped down backdrop to Wennerstrom's throaty rocker vocals, once described by The Village Voice as "totally arresting." The folksy "Be So Happy" reflects an interest in change as Wennerstrom sings, "I could be so happy, if I just quit bein' sad. I could be so funny, if I just quit bein' a drag." While the band sports a new rhythm section, old schoolers should take heart -- HB continues to deliver the roiling riffs reminiscent of earlier days. The trio played and sang its collective heart out on March 15 at The Pageant.
