Susan is a band, not a person, which provokes the same confusion Blondie always had to combat—but either way Susan is someone you'll want in your life. Their latest is the compact and potent "Cassiopeia," named for a queen who sacrificed everything for her vanity, and it sounds like "Judy Is A Punk" transformed to fit into Dolly Mixture's Demonstration Tapes. That's punk energy with post-punk wit, depth and clarity. (Or poetry at velocity, as someone once probably said.) In their L.A. RECORD interview, you'll see how they attack horror with humor, and that's a tactic they're even better at now. Their new As I Was album is out Fri., Sept. 6, on San Diego's formidable Volar label and you can get it here. (Their debut full-length and prior EPs are also available.)" /> L.A. Record

L.A.’s Susan is a band, not a person, which provokes the same confusion Blondie always had to combat—but either way Susan is someone you’ll want in your life. Their latest is the compact and potent “Cassiopeia,” named for a queen who sacrificed everything for her vanity, and it sounds like “Judy Is A Punk” transformed to fit into Dolly Mixture’s Demonstration Tapes. That’s punk energy with post-punk wit, depth and clarity. (Or poetry at velocity, as someone once probably said.) In their L.A. RECORD interview, you’ll see how they attack horror with humor, and that’s a tactic they’re even better at now. Their new As I Was album is out Fri., Sept. 6, on San Diego’s formidable Volar label and you can get it here. (Their debut full-length and prior EPs are also available.)
