Happy SUSTO Day, Charleston. After a sold out debut at the Windjammer last night, the hometown crew has a fresh release now available IRL and on your fave streaming service.
The album represents a profoundly personal endeavor
for Susto frontman Justin Osborne, as CP
music editor Kelly Rae Smith explored in this week's cover story
Ever Since I Lost My Mind
is SUSTO's third LP, and the first since one of the band's members, Johnny Delaware, bolted to form the Artisanals. Other former SUSTO-izens (SUSTO-ers? SUSTO-ners? SUSTOians?) Jenna Desmond and Corey Campbell also spawned Babe Club last year.
Of course you can toss them some pennies and stream the tracks on your Spotty or whatever, and that'll get you by in a pinch, but if you head to Monster Music & Movies in West Ashley (946 Orleans Road), you can plunk down a few actual dollars to support the local musicians who made the release happen, not to mention your local record store. The album is even available as a damn-perty vinyl edition.
To hold you over until you can cop a physical copy, here's the link to Spotify

/whatever it's called now.
