RAVE’S FAVES: The Wombats – Schumacher the Champagne


Contributed by Bruce Rave

With iconic UK hits like “Let’s Dance to Joy Division” in their past, it’s almost hard to believe this is only the second Wombats album. Their cool melodies and humorous lyrics return, but the musical edges are smoother on the follow-up. “Schumacher the Champagne” is nothing like what you’d expect from them. The frenetic synth intro moves into a cool groove, sing-along choruses, a metal riff, and more. Definitely worth a listen, and it just might become a current fave for you. The entire album is one of my tops in 2011 so far.
