Our new Download of the Week is "Gates of Dawn" by Heartless Bastards.
The song comes from the Cincinnati band's forthcoming fifth LP, "Restless Ones." NPR Music recently featured "Gates of Dawn" as a standout track, writing:
With the help of producer John Congleton, Restless Ones mixes the polished proficiency of a hardened road band with the inventiveness of musicians who remain in hot pursuit of new ideas. In this first taste of the record, “Gates Of Dawn,” Heartless Bastards’ big, bluesy sound feels slick and streamlined, with choruses that get grander and grander as the song chugs along.
