The Wombats Essentials
The Wombats bring a welcome blast of sloppy and playful fun to modern indie rock. On their 2007 debut album, the UK band bashed out a mix of sing-along Britpop choruses, classic New Wave hooks, and wobbly rhythms that were equal parts New Order, Happy Mondays, and Oasis. It was a cheeky and catchy sound that instantly stood out from their serious and stylish peers, and though the group's later albums grew more ambitious and introspective, they never lost their quirky edge or mischievous attitude. Start grinning and grooving with this collection of off-the-wall Wombats tunes.
