Reviews of Left for Dead

“With 2005′s country-fried debut, Funeral Dress, Wussy arrived just as quietly as Chuck Cleaver’s previous band, ’90s shoulda-beens Ass Ponys, exited. Cleaver’s predilection for black humor and white trash remained, and he packed a secret weapon in co-conspirator Lisa Walker. On this more assured follow-up, Cleaver largely cedes the spotlight to Walker, but the best moments come when his warbly falsetto mixes with her bruised alto. “Sun Giant Says Hey” is jubilant, while “What’s-His-Name” sounds as peppy as it does bilious (read: very). Meanwhile, Walker’s star turn on “Tiny Spiders” manages to be haunting and exalting at the same time.” – Spin

“Alive with the gritty, imperfect glow and wry humor of coed combos X and the Mekons.” – Magnet
