The year 1994 was a watershed one for music. Yes, the death of Kurt Cobain was a sour note that signaled the rapid decline of grunge, but there were so many modern classics released that year that Rolling Stone recently put out a list of 20 that are celebrating their 20th anniversaries. Suffice to say, we’re feeling awfully nostalgic these days, and Heartless Bastards make the type of music that satisfy our mid-’90s cravings.
In this episode of A Trolley Show, the Cincinnati group performs “Skin & Bone,” a mid-tempo rocker that could easily fit in with Blind Melon and Soul Asylum. Add to that Erika Wennerstrom’s refrain “I want it to be like when I was young,” and we might as well be riding the trolley to Nostalgiaville.
