(Sigh) What a shame it is this EP has to end after 23 minutes. What a shame that all of David Keenan’s EPs released over the last two years have ended too soon. While each release offers proof of his outstanding talent, Evidence of Living gives us a complete collection of songs that bind all that has come before it together.

Wussy came my way a few months back and are now as special to me as sunny days are to the Irish. I can’t get enough of them. From their debut ‘Funeral Dress’ to the most recent, and the subject of today’s review, ‘Forever Sounds’, Wussy have told tales of love, hardship and sometimes, The Big Lebowski. Their sound is sometimes indie rock, as unkempt … Continue reading Wussy-Forever Sounds
