Amoeba Music: Free In-Store Mini Concerts
Join Liverpool-based indie rock trio The Wombats at Amoeba SF for a live set and signing of their latest album Glitterbug (out now on Bright Anntena on CD & LP).
Los Angeles: a city of contrasts. On one hand, a metropolis of aspirations, a place which offers the transient a tantalizing glimpse of glamour and permanence. On the other, many dreams drift away, deserted within an urban personification of unfulfilled ambitions.
It might not seem like the most obvious place around which to theme an album for a band rooted in Liverpool (albeit via Norway in the case of bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen, or onto London for frontman Matthew ‘Murph’ Murphy), but that’s precisely what The Wombats have done with their third album Glitterbug, a collection that follows their hit This Modern Glitch.
Completed by drummer Dan Haggis, The Wombats have a long association with Los Angeles. They’ve played in and around the city numerous times since the release of their debut A Guide To Love, Loss and Desperation, and even recorded their second album This Modern Glitch there too. For the band’s core songwriter Murph it also proved to be a fount of inspiration, which gradually mutated into a magnetic attraction.
