Experienced multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Casey Weissbuch — a native of Cincinnati now based in Brooklyn who has played with the likes of Colleen Green, Bully, Mitski and Diarrhea Planet — has a new Indie Rock band called Wisebuck.

Soundwise, think Pavement, Elliott Smith, Silver Jews, Wilco and Guided by Voices. Other musicians working with Weissbuch (who sings and plays guitar) in the band include fellow Cincy-expats Mike Sarason (keys, vocals) and Matt Kursmark (drums), both founding members of Cincinnati Reggae band The Pinstripes and now of The Far East, who recently toured with The Specials. The project also features Dylan DeBiase of Wreath on bass and Jon Degen from Big D & the Kids Table plays slide guitar and saxophone. Velvet Vaughn provides background vocals.

Today CityBeat is proud to premiere Wisebuck’s single “The Bodies” off of their upcoming debut album Flyworld, which is due for release on Jan. 17.

The tune takes you through Weissbuch’s left ear, into his temporal lobe’s auditory cortex where the rhythmic jangly guitar intro was likely created, a detour into his cerebrum shows you how the wistfully reflective lyrics came to be and, finally, into the motor cortex so you can boogie and bop along with this layered and emotionally driven-yet-danceable track made for someone who’s heard it all but is hurting for something new: this is that new.
