Suspensers "Strings & Wood" by Soft Abuse

Suspensers operate in the shadows of New York City, occasionally surfacing to share their reveries with unsuspecting basement show-goers. Borne from the mind and lips of Ted Robinson, pusher of the finest acid-country tunes heard in an age, Suspensers formed in the wake of a relocation from Asheville, and have since settled into the city's invisible fringe. Robinson's membership in D. Charles Speer & The Helix coax a certain expectation on what's happening here, and it's not far off. Suspensers' songs dwell in the foothills of that traditionalism, however, and offer a far wilder vision of hillbilly music; traces of Charlies Tweddle and Feathers bubble up here & there.

Too Dumb to Live, Too Stoned to Die is the band's debut full-length, a reissue of their privately-released 2011 cassette, AKA FMLOL. Suspensers have a single in the works, but ask that you dose this first.
