Editors’ Notes

After two albums of sour mash-infused music that fits — not so neatly — into a few different musical genres, Wussy’s third release continues with a rich, earthy sound built on straightforward guitars and drums, and the wonderfully imperfect vocals of Lisa Walker and Chuck Cleaver (although hers are closer to perfect than his). Cleaver, formerly of the neo-hillbilly/indie-rock outfit the Ass Ponys, still has his unmistakable, hi-pitched warble but brings it down to a dusky, darker tone on occasion. He’s like a gentle, grizzled bear on the sweet “Magic Words,” pining for love from his partner-in-all-things (Walker), as she twitters sweetly in the background. Pining back on “Gone Missing,” Walker veers into Chrissie Hynde territory with her warm and husky tones, and on the fantastic, chugging “Happiness Bleeds” they exchange endearing shouts of love. The slow waltz of “Dreadful Sorry” and the bittersweet send-off of “Maglite” are additional standouts. Wussy’s artful lyrics are never embarrassing, and their command of a catchy melody is impressive. This Cincinnati outfit only gets stronger with each outing.

Customer Reviews

Best band in America

'Nuff said.

This One Is For You Mom...(baby, I love you)

My mother and I always had arguments about whether the lyrics or the tune were the most important part of a song. She always went with lyrics while I always expressed tunes as being the soul of a song. Well, Mom, I wish you would have been alive when I discovered Wussy. They have both, and I know you would adore them as much as me...and Tara...and Paul!

I miss you and hope you can hear them wherever you are!

Nice Find

Heard this on KEXP in Seattle a few times and think they have this great mini-wall of sound quality. A nice pop album that wont bruise your ego if you are caught listening to it in your car with the windows rolled down.

Wussy are one of the most celebrated independent bands in the American Midwest, a band whose idiosyncratically thoughtful songs and atmospheric, forceful guitar attack have won them a fervent cult following and a growing stack of rave reviews, even if their acclaim hasn't translated into major financial success (as they were preparing to release their sixth album, the band's members still had their day jobs). Wussy were formed by guitarist and singer Chuck Cleaver, who had enjoyed modest success...
