Wussy, Buckle Rash

JAY HORTON
9 pm, Saturday June 21 | $8 advance, $10 day of show.
Alhambra Theatre
4811 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
 

[SACRED COWPUNK] With fifth album Attica universally lauded by the usual tastemakers and glowingly name-checked in the unlikeliest venues (the Los Angeles Review of Books? Robert Christgau's Lou Reed farewell?), the gulf between Wussy's old media profile and genuine cultural footprint feels so vast we might as well be talking about different bands. Songs from the actual Cincinnati quartet—dully hardscrabble ruminations pitched forward atop countrified guitar-pop decked out as a '90s-alt collage of fuzz, feedback and steel guitar—are tuneful and well-crafted if hardly world-beaters. But something about the mismatched former couple up front, their ungainly rust-belting pipes or decidedly unglamorous day jobs, triggers a dreamy romanticism among writers ever swooning over primary source material.
