Heartless Bastards

WFUV at SXSW: Heartless Bastards at Hotel San Jose

by Laura Fedele

“If she wasn’t so good, she’d look like an actress fronting a side project,” says Austin 360.

Well, she is that good.

Ohio-born and Austin-based Heartless Bastards (@HeartlessBstrds) has gone through some lineup changes, but the heart of the band is Erika Wennerstrom. She writes the songs for the four of them to flesh out together, and it’s her big voice that’ll echo in your head.

Take Five with Heartless Bastards

Got to have rock and roll? Last year, Heartless Bastards had the solution with their latest album, Arrow. It was another riff-filled step forward for Erika Wennerstrom and company, who FUV started playing in 2009 with their album, The Mountain. For the band's latest visit to Studio A, Heartless Bastards braved being live on FUV at Noon (early in rock star time), and this performance of "Got To Have Rock and Roll" ended up as one of 20 live recordings on FUV Live 15.
