Friday Freebie: Wussy - Ghosts

Wussy was one of the first shows I had cancel when quarantine started back in March, and a dozen or so other cancellations later, it still hurts the most. To alleviate that pain a little, Wussy have released Ghosts as a free download. It's not an album exactly. Wussy describe this release as "... a free digital mixtape created to thank Wussy fans. It contains B-sides, rarities, related projects and two previously unreleased tracks." Some highlights (besides the whole thing... this is Wussy, after all) include "Fly Fly Fly (Green Belt Version)," an absolutely gorgeous minimalist remix of "Jonah" by dj dq, an early rough mix of "She's Out There," an epic live version of "Shunt," and Chuck Cleaver and Lisa Walker doing an ultra-countrified "Mountain In Our Backyard." Wussy have always been one of the hardest band to figure out where to start listening. Ghosts is both a perfect jumping on point and a collection for long time fans to cherish.

You can listen to "Fly Fly Fly (Green Belt Version)" below. Ghosts is available as a free download via Bandcamp. For more on Wussy, check out their website.
