SUSS

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to SUSS, an ambient country band based in New York City. Thanks to Michael for the recommendation. The four-piece group are alumni of bands like the B-52s and Rubber Rodeo. They use folk music instruments — acoustic guitar, pedal steel, mandolin, etc. — to make ambient music. Their tracks evoke the American southwest, and they’ve tongue-in-cheekly described their output as “music for carports.” We’re playing their only two LPs, Ghost Box and High Line, which contain some of the best focus music we’ve discovered this year.

Ghost Box by SUSS (60m, no vocals) Spotify / Apple Music / YouTube Music / Amazon Music / Bandcamp / Tidal

High Line by SUSS (40m, no vocals) Spotify / Apple Music / YouTube Music / Amazon Music / Bandcamp / Tidal

Have a good start to your week.
