At the end of an hour-plus set in Columbus last week, SUSTO frontman Justin Osborne confessed that he just wanted “to love on you all,” lamenting the discord of America’s new political landscape. Osborne was admittedly having a wonderful, herbally-supplemented night, and he tried his damndest to communicate that euphoria to his fans through his guitar and voice. Osborne and band members Corey Campbell, Jenna Desmond, Marshall Hudson and Dries Vandenburg have followed that imperative for a winding 38-date tour, 17 of which occur in massive arenas opening for The Lumineers. The quintet launched through an assortment of folky, alt-country tracks pulled across both of their LPs, including sophomore release & I’m Fine Today, which released less than a month ago. The rich narratives of love, loss and decadence echo on a molecular level; Osborne’s voice bleeds sincerity alongside veteran accompaniment. Paste photographer Sean Edgar spent the evening with the group, chronicling some hang time and the main show. SUSTO is on tour through June.
