Band of Heathens

Beware acronym-wielding hipsters. When speaking of country rock and the initials B.O.H., don’t be quick to assume the reference is to Ben Bridwell and his Band of Horses. When you cross the border of the Lone Star State, locals will presume you’re talking about Band of Heathens, a collective of Austin musicians that purveys a similar brand of unwashed American music. But the Heathens take is on the Jay Farrar tip and super-duper Texafied. They sound so much like the Live Music Capital of the World that two minutes into any of their stellar tracks you’ll start to crave BBQ sauce and a bourbon with a Shiner Bock back. With Cady Wire.
