Let's Dance to Joy Division - The Wombats

Legbamel Not-Pop

No one would mistake The Wombats for a deep, considering bunch of socially-concerned neo-hippies from Liverpool. But when they're as fun as they are with Let's Dance to Joy Division, who want political commentary? They play fast, bouncy, semi-pop, post-punk, handclap indie rock and the lyrics merely adorn the fact that they are playing--as opposed to working, taking themselves seriously. Most of The Wombats' songs, particularly those from their 2008 full-length debut "A Guide to Love, Loss, and Desperation", tell a little story about something personal simply as an excuse to hammer those drums and jump up and down (generally all done by the same young man, in fact). Some days you just need a little fun. If today's one of those days, enjoy Let's Dance to Joy Division, complete with weird kid choir.
