SUSTO, with Frances Cone

Neurolux, Sunday, March 31

by

On the heels of the release of his brand-new album, Ever Since I Lost my Mind (Rounder, 2019), indie-rock artist SUSTO (Justin Osborne) is heading to Boise. Maybe it's easy to dismiss Americana tracks as "already-heard-it" riffs on country music, but that would be a mistake when it comes to SUSTO. With more gravel in his voice than the typical Americana singer and a surprising density of electronic elements supplementing the usual acoustic guitar, SUSTO is his own creature, as the occasional howl on Ever Since I Lost my Mind bears out. And if you plan to check out his show, don't be late: The indie-soul group Frances Cone, lead by smoky-voiced Christina Cone, is opening, and its warm, mellow pop is an antidote to even the worst of bad days. We suggest pregaming with "Leave Without You" and "Arizona."
