11:06 Beale Street Caravan
There are not many bands that can hold your attention on the radio for an hour, but The Band of Heathens manage that with their recipe of soul, blues, and folk, woven into well-crafted songs. Their sound is evocative of Little Feat, The Band and The Black Crowes, ready-made for sitting on the back porch with a cold beer, even at eleven o'clock at night in the middle of winter! Perhaps not, better stick in the warm with Nights, and Beale Street Caravan!
