Heartless Bastards, Writer

When: Mon., July 22, 8 p.m. 2013


The Austin-based Heartless Bastards' name can be misleading. No, they are not a bunch of punk-rock motorcycle dudes, although a similar energy is certainly present. Their guttural, multi-dimensional, rock 'n' roll sound is characterized by lead singer Erika Wennerstrom's throaty, full-bodied vocals. The band is in Portland in support of their stunning fourth record, The Arrow, their first time back since playing Pickathon last summer. Each of their songs—whether they include finger picking or full-on guitar shredding—is a dynamic, expressive piece of work that pulls on your heartstrings. RACHEL MILBAUER
