Wussy/The Lawton Brothers/Fever Child

Curmudgeonly singer-guitarist Chuck Cleaver has such a long history of putting out great music and having little to show for it, you wonder how the guy keeps at it. With the Ass Ponys, the Cincinnati-based indie rock act that he formed in 1988, he actually did have a brush with major label fame when A&M inked him to a multi-album deal. But that arrangement didn’t last and those records didn’t sell particularly well despite receiving critical acclaim. With his latest outfit Wussy, which he formed in 2005, Cleaver has a terrific vehicle for his shimmering songs that alternately embrace a twangy, alt-country sound and then drone like a modern-day approximation of the Velvet Underground. Cleaver and guitarist Lisa Walker share singing duties, making for dynamic vocal interplay that really shines on the band’s recent release Forever Sounds. (Jeff Niesel)
