MP3 of the Day: Heartless Bastards

Categories: MP3 of the Day

The iPod shuffle is the greatest invention ever -- especially for bringing oldies but goodies back up from the depths of your music collection. Case in point: Walking to work yesterday the Heartless Bastards' cover of Mississippi Delta bluesman Junior Kimbrough's song "Done Got Old" surfaced outta nowhere. The song gets an extra rock kick from these Bastards, but it's Erika Wennerstrom's rusty-nail wail that really adds texture to this bluesy lament. I have the song from an old Kimbrough covers comp, Sunday Nights: The Songs of Junior Kimbrough, but you can check it out via Lastfm here. -- Jennifer Maerz
