4.0 out of 5 stars Another solid album from Wussy Nov. 23 2011
By Paul Allaer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Indie-rock band Wussy, fronted by singers/songwriters Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker, has been releasing a steady stream of albums and EPs since 2005. The last 'proper' studio album was the self-titled album in 2009. Eaerlier this year (in the context of the annual Record Store Day in celebration of indie record stores), the band released "Funeral Dress II", a live recording/reinterpretation of the band's stellar debut album. Now comes the 4th proper studio album.

"Strawberry" (11 tracks: 42 min.) kicks off with a dreamy "Asteroids" in which Chuck repeats "Way out/Beyond the asteroids/That's where you took my heart/And left it floating in a frozen void". As on past albums, Chuck and Lisa basically share an equal number of songs. For soome reasons the first half of the album is heavy on Chuck songs (4 of the first 5 tracks), and the second half on Lisa songs (including 3 of the last 4), rather than mixing things up. It doesn't really matter, though. The album is sequenced quite well, and the songs easily flow by. The best tracks for me are the afore-mentioned "Asteroids", the gently rolling "Waiting Room", the stomping "Chicken", "Fly Fly Fly" (which is the only song on here accredited to both Chuck and Lisa, but sounds mostly like a Chuck song), and the 6 min. epic closer "Little Miami".

In all, this is yet another sold album from Wussy. I've seen the Cincinnati-based band play on many, many occasions over the last 6+ years in many different avenues around town, including at the "CD release" show for this album not too long ago. In concert the songs on this collection rock even harder. "Strawberry" is highly recommended!

I love this album! The songs are great and the band is awesome. It is a plus that they are a sort of local band too. Thanks to WNKU for playing their music so folks like me can listen and become fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars A band that can't be over sold. Aug. 24 2015
By Tina T. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
5 star plus! I bought Strawberry at Shake it Records & downloaded the MP3 on Amazon. I have not been this excited about new music in decades. It was my son in his 20's that brought Wussy to my attention. I read other reviews & so many agree that this band should get major air play. These rockers juxtapose musical influences into a genre of their own. Cleaver & Walker together or on their own have unique qualities in their voices that mingle well, both tender & soaring. This album got an A from Xgau. Recently with the newer album Attica they have been featured on CBS & KEXP. Every song is unique & yet always so 'Wussy'. Really can't imagine anyone who fancies themselves having a good ear and enjoying variety in style from rock to pop to punk to Americana not really liking this band. I have so many reasons for liking this band & for fun (mine) here are 10 of mine.

#1. Songwriting. Chuck Cleaver & Lisa Walker are original voices.
#2. That Indie, synthy Ohio Drone sound lifts the rafters.
#3. Surprises, ironies, beauty, tenderness & more; always more.
#4. Feeling you get it.
#5. Warbles, wails, shouts lift the rafters.
#6. Musicianship.
#7. Takes you out of your own breathing space for a while.
#8. Asteroids, 19 words, gorgeous synth, harpsichord 1st track of 11 & they all shine.
#9. Songs stay in your head.
#10. They are Wussy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have Wussy! Jan. 3 2015
By A. Towner - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am writing this as a general review for Wussy. I recently bought 4 of their albums: Strawberry, Attica!, Left for Dead and Wussy. I am not as active as I once was in the music scene but do not know how I never ran across these guys till now! Really great band. They have real songwriting skills along with some songs with distortion and a nice mix of complimenting music styles through out. Love the male and female lead singing that switches from song to song on albums along with some duet/back up vocal work. They do not fit well in a genre but would put somewhere in the alt/rock, indie, alt/country. Got Strawberry right before driving long distance for the holidays and listened to it 4-5 times and not sick of it in the least. Buy their music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of art June 30 2015
By andy reno - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Amazing album that flawlessly mixes rock, storytelling, hauntingly beautiful vocals and grit. Bought it to check out a local band, found one of my all-time favorite groups. These guys are up there with Black Keys and Jack White in musical inventiveness and execution, but have a unique sound unlike any I've heard elsewhere.
