On Wussy's Attica!, this unjustly under-celebrated Cincinnati band's ninth release in 10 years, burly alt-rock vet Chuck Cleaver warbles with ornery middle-aged restlessness ("This is not a home/This is an apartment") while the younger Lisa Walker can dream that memories of a time "when the kick of the drum lined up with the beat of your heart" might double as predictions of the future. Both singers' guitars are fluent in every major indie-rock dialect — twang and jangle, squelch and fuzz, drone and strum — and few (if any) working bands today make a stronger case that this musical tradition can still help ordinary folks articulate their hopes and dissatisfactions. With Fury Things and Hollow Boys. (Photo by Sean Hughes)
