Everyone we’ve ever known from Ohio exudes a rockin’ cool vibe. Stands to reason that Ohio natives Heartless Bastards (who call Austin home now) would rock our faces off, and Erika Wennerstrom’s presence and vocals command and demand attention (and the guys in the band aren’t bad either: Dave Colvin, Jesse Ebaugh, Mark Nathan). Erika could hold her own with Kim Gordon, Kim Deal, Chrissie Hynde, Wanda Jackson, Rachel Nagy and Maribel Ramirez (Detroit Cobras). Our only request: a new album!
Until then, enjoy this video from the band’s 2009 SXSW performance of “Out At Sea” from The Mountain.
