The Heartless Bastards returned home to the new Southgate House Revival in Newport, Kentucky on January 26 with a tight, powerful set that featured selections from their past recordings and recent disc, Arrow. Opening with a visceral take on the jamming monster title track from their 2009 album, The Mountain, Erika Wennerstrom strummed her guitar and sang with gusto as Dave Colvin’s wall of percussion shook the interiors of the church’s walls.

Ken Stringfellow – musician, songwriter, producer, arranger – has been part of the indie landscape since the debut of his acclaimed band The Posies in 1988. Hailing from the musical hotbed of Seattle at the time when that music scene exploded into national prominence, The Posies went on to sign with Geffen Records and released brilliant, successful albums such as 1993’s legendary “Frosting on the Beater”. The band is still active today, having released their seventh album, “Blood/Candy” in 2010…an album heaped with critical praise in the UK press…The Word magazine devoted two pages to a review which called it “a finely calibrated….dazzling tapestry…just stupidly good”.

Ring is sparse, chaotic, abrasive and lulling, often within the same song. Read more
