ROB SEZ: I don't usually write about new or relatively unknown artists. But occasionally a band's music will catch my ear, and I feel compelled to help spread the word. Wussy is one of those groups. Check the sample to hear why Robert Christgau raves that Wussy has been "the best band in America" ever since they released their debut in 2005.

  1. "The best band in America" is a great exaggeration, but "the best band in Cincinnati" sounds about right.

    Thanks for this post. It's nice to see Wussy getting some attention on a quality site like this (which I just discovered last week).

    1. Yeah, I'm not so sure Christgau's enthusiasm didn't run away with him.

      But Wussy is pretty darn compelling as alt. rock bands go...
