Wussy / Forever Sounds

SPIN’s 50 Best Albums of 2016 So Far
“America’s best songwriting band might now be among its best soundscaping ones” – SPIN

“Their most complete work yet” – Noisey

“Swirling psych rock riffs that expand outward, seemingly without end” – AV Club

“Criminally underrated” – Paste

“A swaggering, bleary, distorted churn topped off by another virtuoso vocal duet” – Stereogum

“Maximum singability and staying power” Pitchfork

Following the release of their cult classic debut in 2005, “to certain fans of Lucinda Williams, Crazy Horse, Mekons and R.E.M., Wussy became the best band in America almost instantaneously with…Funeral Dress” (SPIN). Made up of Chuck Cleaver (Ass Ponys), Lisa Walker, Mark Messerly, Joe Klug, and John Erhardt, the band has truly come into ther own on the new album.

IMG_2120Having returned from a string of successful 2016 UK and US dates (including BBC6, KEXP and Daytrotter sessions), Wussy resume their extensive tour of the US on July 7.

Wussy’s 2016 LP Forever Sounds (Shake It / Damnably) has been  featured in SPIN, Noisey, Stereogum, NPR, AV Club, Paste and more. Most recently, the band’s UK Record Store Day single “Ceremony” (Damnably) has been getting extensive BBC airplay since its April 22 release. Their tour season wraps up in September with two back-to-back hometown shows at Cincinnati’s historic Woodward Theater with special guests that will be announced in July.

Wussy Announce Sixth Album ‘Forever Sounds’ and Share New Track, ‘Dropping Houses’ via SPIN Magazine

“America’s best songwriting band might now be among its best soundscaping ones” – SPIN
“It’s a swaggering, bleary, distorted churn topped off by another virtuoso vocal duet from Walker and Cleaver.” – Stereogum
Wussy’s sixth LP is bleaker and more difficult than its predecessor, 2014’s tentatively anthemic Attica!. The album is full of darkly valiant shoegaze, music that is cozy enough to hibernate under. – Pitchfork
