Heartless Bastards

Anyone else see the Heartless Bastards on Letterman? Super raw for a TV performance -- especially the thumping and jangly drums (a la JDunn). I dig.

Were they connected to the Black Keys in some way?

UPDATE:
Heartless Bastards are playing tonight in my zone, and according to an interview on local radio, they were from Akron, but most recently worked with the Spoon producer in Austin.

I think they're from Ohio and they're on (or were on) Fat Possum. I always see their albums at Borders.

They said Austin, TX, last night, which caught me off guard too. I was thinking Ohio...and remembering some live tracks I heard once.

The PopMatters review of the new one said they relocated since the last CD:
