I love this album.

Den-Bag

If you love X, the Velvets, and Richard & Linda Thompson, and you wish a band would magically form out of the genetic mutations of those artists' DNA, here's an album for you. Conversely, if you just want to hear an album with 11 really, really great songs, here's an album for you. I can't recommend Funeral Dress strongly enough.

A Wonder!

Mokeefe11

Stumbled upon by following Chuck Cleaver, ex-Ass Pony's leader, and am amazed this hasn't recieved more coverage and play. Guy/girl fuzz pop with delicious lyrics that hang with you. All good, and I don't usually say that, but for the unitiated, try Airborne, Soak it Up, Yellow Cotton Dress, Bought it again.

Best Debut Album Ever - maybe

mattress

Maybe not, but for a debut album, amazing. On par with "Murmer" by REM and "Los Angeles" by X. Awesome lyrics: "And all the treasure of the good days is going through the last phase, of yours and yours and mine. Then something from the yours pile shattered on the floor tile, and you went off like Frankenstein." from the first song, and who can forget a classic like... "Human brained horse, ten cents admission. I wonder of course. But I have my suspicions is he, smarter than me." This is a guy and a girl singing alone and together, like X. Like X, neither of them really has a great voice, but like John Doe, Exene, Tom Waits and Chrissy Hynde, they get IT across, and it works wonderfully. Somehow. Worth downloading, then going online and buying a copy from their label, then buying a few more and passing them around to family and friends. With a name like Wussy, it's GOT TO BE GOOD!

Poptastic Sonic Youth-y fuzzout throwdown! Some of the catchiest tunes of the year, this is definitely one of my favorite releases of 2006, and the most underrated album of the year.

amazing

A great album and one of the best I've heard this year so far. It's indie rock with an alt-country feeling. Very highly recommended.

They Say All Music Guide

If Funeral Dress is any indication, Cincinnati’s Wussy exhibits little desire to re-tread the same musical black top traveled by guitarist Chuck Cleaver as a member of the beloved, now-defunct Ass Ponys. Fronted by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lisa Walker, the band vibes like a hybrid of Mazzy Star and Fetchin Bones on songs like “Airborne.” Of course there are sonic traces of Pony dung here and there, but the group lacks the tongue-in-cheek playfulness of Cleaver’s former band. If drummer Dawn Burman is the quartet’s weakest link — as a fan/friend who reportedly learned to play the skins in order to join Cleaver’s new band — Walker’s vocal range and Wussy’s overall musicianship — best evidenced on the fairly contagious “Yellow Cotton Dress” — make valid reasons to check out Funeral Dress. – John D. Luerssen
