"I’ll be honest, I wasn’t even going to put this in the cassette player because the cover design and band logo were so wonky, but finally after a couple weeks I relented and boy I’m glad I did. Because ultimately it’s not about the graphics, it’s about The Music, and This is some pretty uncanny post-punk female-fronted guitar trio Music. In some ways it reminds me of Thinking Fellers Union Local 282. It also reminds me of that band eSSI (also reviewed in this edition), but with vocals more like (thee) Elizabeth Fraser. Even though Wombo is from Louisville, KY, as is the label, our old friends Sophomore Lounge. And I’m a little surprised to learn more, and see that Wombo really is just a guitar/bass/drums trio, with bassist Sydney Chadwick also the lead singer while playing intricate lines, and guitarist Cameron Lowe and drummer Joel Taylor both quite creative on their instruments as well. I had pictured maybe at least a quartet after first listen, some kinda Crimsonoid Suburban Lawns kinda thing, that can still dip into Mediterranean lounge pop as needed. Crazy band!" - Blastitude
