This Will Not End Well represents the fourth studio album featuring the music of seminal Queen City band Wussy. Conceived in collaboration with Jay Reynolds (4Track All-Stars, Eagle to Squirrel Variety Hour), TWNEW features ten remixes by nine different artists.
djdq, Coltrane Motion, John Curley and others contribute, as well as one full half of the Wussy line-up: bass/utility maven Mark Messerly and trap-kit wunderkind Joe Klug. When coupled with the high, lonesome vocal stylings of co-front-persons Lisa Walker and Chuck Cleaver, these new settings depart from the band’s usual Southern Noise-Gospel digs for territory somewhere between Stockhausen, Mothersbaugh, and Massive Attack.
Free any of the sub-genre strictures that often accompany forays into the world of electronic music, TWNEW offers ten honest, preconception-free ruminations on classics like Jonah, Happiness Bleeds, and Maglite. If you’ve ever wondered what Wussy would sound like backed by a choir of Kraftwerkian robots, or if a broken mini-Moog works in a Chuck/Lisa duet, or if Sun Giant Says Hey could survive the extinction-level event caused by a huge piano sample being dropped from orbit, get ready to have your questions answered.
