Heartless Bastards's third release, Mountain, is their most diverse blend of roots, power pop and rock'n'roll. Singer/songwriter
Erika Wennerstrom continues to belt out vocals that range from soulful and sexy to pissed off. Erika is brilliant at writing lyrics that are layered and grind contrasting images and meaning. I like that Wennerstrom rises above defeatism as she throws a suckerpunch of attitude as the band provide plenty of colour to let Mountain sound very f*cking bold.

The lead singer of this group, who is Swedish, has a very distinctive style, difficult to put your finger on it and sometimes might seem out of place, but somehow it works very well together with a band from Texas. Very noticeable good pedal steel guitar player, but not necessarily Country style. Songs that stand out, The Mountain, Early In The Morning, Witchypoo and Sway.
