Wussy's brand new What Heaven Is Like is here!
The CD and LP are now both in, so if you haven't stopped by the shop or put in an online order we are still waiting to hear from ya!
On What Heaven Is Like, Wussy continue their longstanding tradition of combining supernatural tales and workaday anthems, with inspirations that range from the monsters of urban legends to late-night public television viewing. The new record builds on the momentum of their prior two releases Attica! and Forever Sounds, with sonic and melodic nods to Springsteen, Mercury Rev, Unrest, Neu! and The Replacements, with songs at once devastating and hopeful. Highlights include a ballad for a beloved television heroine, a pair of covers by Kath Bloom and Twinkeyz, and a three-song suite inspired by Charles Burns' brilliant and ever-timely graphic novel Black Hole.
If you can't make it to the store, our online shop is open and eager to ship one to you! All previous Wussy albums are still in stock on CD and LP if you need to round out your collection.
Shake It is extremely honored to be selected the #2 Record Store in the U.S. by Yelp! Thanks to our customers for all those great reviews that got us on the list.
