The Austin band Heartless Bastards makes a gigantic, wide-open sort of road-trip rock, and their 2009 album The Mountain was an absolute gem. The band returns early next year with a new album called Arrow, which they recorded with Spoon’s Jim Eno. And below, you can grab the first song we’ve heard from the album. It’s called “Parted Ways,” and it’s yet another showcase for frontwoman Erika Wennerstrom’s earthy wail.
Arrow is out 2/14 on Partisan.
