Now three albums into a cult career that’s so undeserved that it makes you question not just the music biz but greater cosmic matters, Wussy’s latest one might not match their other records but it still beats out 99% of the rootsy-rock/alt-country bands out there, and it still sounds like one of the strongest releases so far in ’09. Maybe it’s Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker’s yearning-but-determined vocals or maybe it’s just that know-how that propels their songs forward. Anyone who still supports No Depression should be boosting this crew, too. With Chris Brokaw and Doug Gillard.
