Wussy have made four previous studio albums and seem to be hiding their light under a rather large bushel. Hailing from Cincinati they are fronted by founder Chuck Cleaver ex of `The Ass Ponys' and Lisa Walker - they bring a wealth of musical experience and influences to this their latest offering. Opening with the melodic `Teenage Wasteland' that has a piano refrain that makes it instantly lovable.

The next two tracks are distinctly punk influenced and I was taken back a few decades when I heard them - bit of `Buzzcocks' going on and a nod at grunge. Then it's back to the melodious stuff with `North Sea Girls' and Lisa takes on the vocal. Cleaver slows things down with a fairly stripped back `Acetylene' and there are some wonderful harmonies going on here. `Lightning' has both feet in the school of rock and a full on sound where the band make the best use of Joe Klug on drums and proper use of cymbals too.

I don't think there is a duff track here but there are some absolute stand out stunners and if you want a rabble rouser to sing along too then `Gene I dream' is just stompingly good. The vocal is clear and has the sort of resonance that is oft lacking these days and the drum patterns give this a wall of sound with great jangly guitar and a driving rhythm that grabs you and takes you for the ride. This is just a great album and received a lot of praise in the US but sadly has been ignored in the UK; I hope that is a situation that is about to end.

Wussy is a Cincinnati-based indie-rock band spearheaded by Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker, each of whom writes and sings lead on about half of the songs (Mark Messerly, Joe Klug and new 'official' member John Erhardt round out the band). The band's 2005 debut album "Funeral Dress" was an immediate critical success, and the band has continued releasing mostly excellent albums. This is the latest release from Wussy.

"Attica!" (11 tracks; 43 min.) opens with its best song, "Teenage Wasteland". If you're thinking, wait, that Who song? YES! It's Lisa's take on it, pondering "Do you remember the moment you finally did something about it/When the kick of the drum lined up with the beat of your heart". The band is on all cylinders and this surely stands as one of the very best songs from Wussy ever. It is followed by a guitar-heavy "Rainbows & Butterflies", where Chuck crunches like it's 1995, just terrific. "Bug" is another heavy and outstanding track. Things let up finally on "North Sea Girls" (the only song from last year's "Wussy Duo" EP to appear on here). A nice acoustic "Acalylene" finishes Side A of the album, which I rate a perfect 5 stars. Side B kicks off with "To the Lightning", another romper (and the only song co-written by Chuck and Lisa on this album). "Halloween" is a nice reflective tune from Lisa, reminiscing about yesteryear. The band sounds less urgent (but no less confident) on Side B, check out also the title track. It all leads to the album closer, the epic "Beautiful", co-sung by Chuck and Lisa, declaring "I'm not the monster that I once was/20 years ago I was more beautiful than today", wow. I rate Side B a sold 4 stars.

In all, "Attica!

Although they've been going for many years this is my first encounter with Wussy and i wasn't too sure what to expect.
Although not very PC i was initially attracted by the band name (it has such a great sound when being spoken, providing it's not being leveled at you of course!) but then also i equally hated the artwork.
It's a difficult album to pigeonhole starting with three quite raucous scuzzy tracks with lyrics such as "you're the bug that's alive inside of me" but from track 4 the rest of the album quietens down somewhat turning into something akin to a form of Americana/alt-country albeit with a very dark edge.
Vocals are shared equally between Chuck & Lisa who both have good voices and there are accordions, slide guitars, mandolins etc along side distorted vocals and guitars.
Interesting to say the least and worth 7 out of 10 or 3.5 stars.

Attica! is the 5th album from Cincinnati’s Wussy, and the first to be released in the UK following the 2012 compilation Buckeye. These 11 new tracks were recorded at John Curley’s (Afghan Whigs) Ultrasuede Studios, and mastered by Dave Davis at QCA, both of Cincinnati, Ohio. 2012 marked the first excursion outside of the US for Wussy’s Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker, and Attica! is partly drawn from their experiences. Former Ass Ponys guitarist John Erhardt joins the band as a fifth member on pedal steel, and the album as a whole sees Wussy incorporate new instrumentation including piano, organ, harmonium, synth, mellotron and e-bow. This, together with guests on Cello & Theremin, adds a greater range and depth to their sound. PRESS:>>>>>>> 7.8 PITCHFORK, 8/10 SPIN, 4/5 The Skinny, 7/10 Popmatters, 9/10 Louder Than War, 8/10 Americana UK. As played by BBC 2 + 6 Music Gideon Coe, Marc Riley, Steve Lamacq, KEXP

4.5 stars... Wussy ascents to the very top with this outstanding album... Will anyone notice? 13 May 2014

I rate Side B a solid 4 stars.

In all, "Attica!" is one fantastic album, and in my humble opinion, the very best album of Wussy to date, and one with which they ascent to the very top of the indie-rock scene. Wussy remains criminally overlooked, and the question is will anyone outside of Cincinnati notice this fantastic new album? I can only hope so. Since I live in Cincinnati, I've had the good fortune of seeing Wussy in concert on many occasions in the last 7-8 years, and live their songs have even more bite than in the studio. Meanwhile, "Attica!" is HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

indie rock + pscyh/Americana + trippy folk songs 8 Aug. 2014
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
4th studio album from Cincinnati, Ohio band who play fully-fleshed, energetic & subtly explosive indie rock with big, building instrumental crescendos and lively, noisy melodies that embrace psychedelic distortion. They also play haunted, progressive psych/Americana ballad rock. And full-on trippy folk songs with a traditional feel & gorgeous vocal harmonies. A wide range of instruments (guitar, synth, mandolin, harmonium, mellotrons, piano, ebow, accordion, pedal steel, etc.) allows the mood to move fluidly from emotional roots music with classic elements to rowdy & aggressively song-driven indie rock and back to folk/psych/drone/vocal harmony ballads. Recalls bands as diverse as the Pixies, Coke Week, R.E.M., Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Scrawl, Yo La Tengo, The Melodic. “Attica!” is cool and full of surprises.

Masterpiece 28 May 2014
By Rob Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Wussy is the best band in the world, but all their previous albums have required a break-in period to be fully appreciated. "Attica!" hits hard from the first play. They are more musically diverse than ever, just as lyrically abstract as ever, and even better than ever. On this album, hints of Velvet Underground, Flying Burrito Brothers, The Band, X, REM, Nirvana, Richard and Linda Thompson, even a little Brian Eno. And that's not even counting the song about the Who, possibly the greatest love song about music ever.

"Attica!" is Wussy's best album, and this is the same band that made "Funeral Dress".

Under-appreciated but not under-achieving - Wussy soars on "Attica!" 25 May 2014
By James Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The five different personalities and lives of the creators of Wussy's latest masterpiece, "Attica!", make it look easy. Their first efforts (Funeral Dress, Left for Dead. Wussy and Funeral Dress II plus EP's) all were resounded successes among their fans, critics and the few people outside the Cincinnati area lucky enough to catch wind of this band's beautiful and powerful vibe. I was one of them and have held on tight for the ride. But "Attica!" is somewhat of a different animal. There is a sense of purpose to these eleven songs, each one separate entities from the others, distinctly placed and brought to life with beautiful sound and production. Lisa Walker and Chuck Cleaver trade off on vocals as usual, and you can't wait from track to track to see who's up next. Those who buy the CD get the privilege to dissect Lisa's lyrics on "Teenage Wasteland," and "Acetylene" takes over as my favorite Cleaver lyric yet.) And when they get together on "To the Lightning," pardon the obvious, sparks fly. Oh, and I didn't even mention the most rocking Wussy song yet, "Rainbows & Butterflies," an evil little ditty if ever there was one. "Attica!" wraps with "Beautiful," a magnificent slow burner piece with the line "20 years ago I was more beautiful / than I am today." 20 Years from now "Attica!" will be more beautiful than IT is today. But not too much, because right now it's looking gorgeous!
