Susto Play the Early Show Tonight at Mercury Lounge

January 24th, 2017

Formed by Justin Osborne (vocals and guitar) a few years back, Susto—rounded out by Corey Campbell (keys and guitar), Marshall Hudson (drums), Jenna Desmond (bass) and Dries Vandenberg (guitar)—make a similar kind of crowd-pleasing folkish alt-country music as acts like the Lumineers, Shovels & Rope and Band of Horses. The Charleston, S.C., group’s fan base has steadily grown thanks to energetic live performances at festivals like Austin City Limits and Stagecoach. And having just released their second album, & I’m Fine Today (stream it below)—“swaying between country-tinged rock, contemplative pop ballads and any number of other genres that exist somewhere within the expansive fabric of Southern music,” according to Consequence of Sound. “It can seem like a pretty hopeless world out there sometimes, but this is the kind of music that just hits in the right way on those long, dark nights of the soul”—Susto (above, “Hard Drugs” for Audiotree Live) play Mercury Lounge tonight, and Heyrocco open the show.
