Press for Buckeye

“The first nine of the seventeen songs on offer here are actually flawless: memorable tracks seem to come by the bucketload, and after the first play of each you could easily be convinced that they’ve been with you forever.”
★★★★★ – Artrocker (August 2012)

“Cincinnati’s Wussy falls under the category of a “Best Band You’ve Never Heard Of” but should make it your business to get acquainted with.. Suggesting only 3 standout tracks from this collection of 17 is a near impossible task.”
★★★★★★★★☆☆  - Blurt Online (August 2012)

“an inexplicably secret history for a band deserving widespread laudation”
★★★★☆ – The Skinny (July 2012)

“strangely unique”
★★★★★★★★☆☆  - Clash (August 2012)

“An unmistakable identity…this collection proves that Wussy are certainly a band with an incredibly rich past and, undoubtedly, an equally rich future.”
BBC (July 2012)

“dual vocals that find a novel way to attack subjects as tried and tested as flings and break ups”
★★★☆☆ – Guardian (July 2012)

Press for Strawberry

“Mindful drone-rockers from Ohio are alternately terse and liquiform in all the right places” - New York Times

“When I say I consider Wussy the best band in America I mean I like or love — no, make that love or really like — just about every one of the 46 songs on those five albums: Funeral Dress, followed by Left for Dead, Wussy, the unplugged start-to-finish remake Funeral Dress II, and Strawberry. We’re talking Beatles-Stones consistency here.” Grade A – Robert Christgau, Barnes & Noble Review

“Every stick-in-your-head chorus seems like a small triumph” ★★★★☆  - Rolling Stone

“A truly classic record, one that will be talked about at length this year and for many more to come” 8/10  – Pop Matters

“They don’t make bands like this anymore.” ★★★★☆ - Boston Phoenix

Press for Wussy (s/t)

“Not a weak track on this album.”
★★★★☆  – Christian Hoard, Rolling Stone

“For exposing ordinary life’s flaming weirdness, you can’t beat the shabby folk rock on this witty third album.. messy, seething passions in all their juicy splendor.”
★★★★★★★★☆☆  – SPIN

“Few bands since the Velvet-steeped heyday of the Feelies, Yo La Tengo and R.E.M. have abandoned themselves so completely to the ebbing, flowing currents of keening, droning guitars.”
Washington Post

“Midwestern alt-country oddballs stay weird, bleak, funny.”

“Lyrically, [they've] done prouder for that old Southern Gothic, Raymond Carver standby of minor-record storytelling than just about anyone in the 2000s..This band has one more interesting thing to say about romance and Ohio with each passing note.”

“Their most fully realized work on their 3rd and best album yet.. A number of standout songs combining distinctive imagery with dark raw emotion.”
KEXP Seattle
