For the three ladies who comprise Susan, an L.A.-based band of the Burger Records persuasion, droning, harmonic vocals mix with lyrics like, "Fuck you, I hate you, I hope you die," on a song titled "Pancake," and somehow those three things go together. Now, with a brand-spankin-new record out on San Diego's Volar Records called Never Enough, the band offers up 11 tracks backed with high-energy, pronounced hits that offer the same sweet, fuzzy jams as found on their EP, but with lyrics that tell that two years have passed—instantly relatable lines like "I want to be improving, not just aging" on "I've Been Known" stand out in particular.
You can catch Susan live, touring in support of that new LP, at Club Congress (311 E. Congress St.) on Wednesday, May 11. The doors open at 8 p.m., with locals Foxx Bodies and La Cerca opening the show. It is a 21 and over event and admission is free. For more information, visit hotelcongress.com.
