While the majority of sites don’t seem to be excited about the prospect of a cosmic ripple of ambient country making its way into the world, around here a new Suss LP is met with anticipation. The band’s last LP was a gorgeous, aching take on sprawling, quavering tones hung under an ominous Harvest moon. Their follow up is once again wandering into the open vistas, though its not a parched and desert dry affair. “Home” is somber but also a bit humid in its hang, with pedal steel circling like a specter and the slow tap of drums over the hills fading like a distant memory on their gauzy tones. The record is again dressed in great artwork from RSTB fave Darryl Norsen, who’s going on record as a 2020 MVP for dotting the most releases in my collection this year. The new LP is out December 4th from Northern Spy.
