Former Susto member Johnny Delaware brings his new band, The Artisanals, to Savannah. The young project, which features Clay Houle and Brave Baby’s Jordan Hicks, has strong footing—the band’s first gig was opening for Band of Horses in Washington, D.C. on New Year’s Eve, and they’ve hit the road with Athens royalty Futurebirds, as well.
The Artisanals have released a few songs with a coolly ‘70s-influenced indie rock feel, and the band is recording an album at The Magic Barn, a studio in Iowa that holds all the gear from New York City’s famed Magic Shop Studio. That means the trio’s cutting a record with the very tools employed by David Bowie, Lou Reed, and Blondie.
They’re joined by The Hernies, an Athens band that blends art-rock and power-pop influence on their Orange Twin Records releases.
