Heartless Bastards
Cincinnati trio Heartless Bastards paints in broad strokes, with sludgy guitars that seem to forever egg on vocalist Erika Wennerstrom—a blond woman with an enormous roar. Hear from the group's latest, Arrow, tonight. Opening is affecting, soft-voiced Canadian singer-songwriter JBM, whose beautiful Stray Ashes album was released last year.
