My KUTX: Heartless Bastards

It’s hard to believe that Heartless Bastards aren’t originally from Austin; they actually moved here from Ohio almost a decade ago. But to me, their music just sounds so Texan: big, beautiful rock-and-roll with a bit of twang and grit. Heartless Bastards put out its fifth album this year, Restless Ones, and I think it’s their best yet. The Bastards’ singer, songwriter, and guitarist Erika Wennerstrom is our guest DJ this week on My KUTX, spinning an hour of her favorite songs. Listen below her playlist.
