PRESS:
"Starting things off is Digital Leather, the formidable project by multi-instrumentalist Shawn Foree. On the other, it's Madison darlings the Hussy. And hey, why not, Foree also plays on some of the Hussy's side. While Foree smolders with his space-aged new wave tracks (which are a must-have if you're a fan of that Damaged Bug LP or, duh, any previous Digital Leather work), the Hussy's power pop attack is given an added layer of synth-based spaciness. This is what a split should be: Two sides that are inherently different while wholly complementing each other."
- Evan Minsker, PITCHFORK


"Wisconsin duo The Hussy are set to release a split 12" with Digital Leather on May 6 via Southpaw Records, and one of their contributions to that split, "WWDLD," is making its premiere in this post. It's a nice dose of noise pop with almost every instrument covered in a layer of distortion, but with catchy yelping vocals and a synth line that earn it the "pop" tag. You can check it out for yourself by streaming it below." - Andrew Sacher, BROOKLYN VEGAN

"“Round & Down” is an extension of the fun breed of psych rock the Madison, Wisconsin-based group have been producing for the past few years. The track opens with a chordless descending guitar riff, cueing in drums and bass and turning up the energetic revelry of the song. In the back of the mix, textural synths creep in and fill out the sonic space as the vocals chant, “Round and round and round and round and round.” Despite the circular nature of the lyrics, the music itself is anything but; the half-time chaos of the last thirty seconds serves as a fitting climax to a song that continues to progress across its two-minute running time, which is just enough for that pre-homeroom smoke sesh."
- Zack Wilks, IMPOSE

"The result on “Happy” is a distinctly Digital Leather keyboard sound—rich and warm but a little off and roughed-up—and one of the strongest, catchiest vocal performances Heather’s put out yet. There’s another good example of that on “EZ/PZ,” from a forthcoming 7-inch."
- Scott Gordon, ARTS EXTRACT
