"Pagan Hiss" is The Hussy's 3rd LP. Released May 7th, 2013 on Southpaw Records. Available on LP, CD and Digital Formats.


The Hussy are a duo from Madison, Wisconsin-- Bobby Hussy plays guitar, Heather Hussy plays drums. They both sing. "Blame" opens Pagan Hiss-- their third album-- with proof that a power duo pegged with words like "psych," "garage," or "punk" don't have to rely solely on caveman stomping or fuzzed out guitars. Sure, there's menace behind Bobby's power chords, and Heather definitely knows how to bash, but there's nuance here. They mess around with a few different guitar textures, vary up their volume for dramatic effect, and line the whole track with sonics worthy of an old sci-fi or horror movie (like the echoing laughter in the intro or the various UFO-worthy effects).

The Hussy hail from what the psych-punk duo describes as "the politically charged cheese rectum that is Madison, Wisconsin," but Bobby and Heather Hussy's surf-squall sounds born of the same West Coast garages where Ty Segall and crew conjure vast volumes of fuzz. Fitting then that Southpaw Records, the label that issued Segall's Live in Aisle Five LP, will release the pair's upcoming third album, Pagan Hiss, on May 7. For a preview of the Hussy's furious, face-melting boy-girl dynamic, see Pagan Hiss cut "Blame" below.

Madison duo The Hussy returns to the fray with a new album of compact garage punkers that barely start on the rails, let along stay on them for very long. The record focuses on what The Hussy does best, high-octane shake with a hard dose of pop roiling underneath. The band keeps it short and sweet, tempos in the realm of frenzied and the guy / girl shout-a-longs careening across your speakers like bumper cars out of control. Recorded again by Bobby Hussy himself, the record's no rehash of their previous album, Weed Seizure, instead it adds a fleshed out bit of production without ever losing any of the immediacy in the impact. Guest appearances by Jordan Davis on organ, RSTB fave Dead Luke on guitar and recorder and Justin Aten on violin break open the double attack of guitar and drums that's been a staple of The Hussy previously. Wrapped up in another eye catcher of a cover, Pagan Hiss makes for a pretty nice vinyl pickup to add to your no doubt mounting pile in 2013.

Garage Rock's Next Generation - 10 Bands To Watch
"Clattery and amphetamine-amped, this garage-on-speed ("Hate This Town," "Right Quick," "Far Removed") is similar to what transpired in the '70s when punk took its inspiration from the garage vernacular and hot-rodded it. The Hussy are a headlong rush, and "Woodland Creature," with its indelible guitar hook, shows they full well know to where they're hurtling. There are a couple of songs about mortality, "Dying" and "Dead To Me," but this band's sense of resurrection shows that this music has afterlife to spare."
