Funeral Dress marks the recorded debut of Wussy & the first recorded output from Chuck Cleaver of The Ass Ponys since 2001's, Lohio. Imagine the cut-to-the-bone lyrics of Sparklehorse with Freakwater harmonies holding down one end of spectrum; the simplicity, but well crafted pop of The Vaselines & the noise of VU the other. Now shove it all in a well-traveled suitcase filled with a Midwestern perspective of desperation, redemption & salvation; whether it be the personal or the holy kind. That's close to what Wussy is. but the only way to really know is to listen. And to listen again and again.
