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.”
– PopMatters

“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.”
– Crawdaddy

“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
