A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation is an astoundingly accomplished and irresistibly catchy debut that deals in despair of the most danceable kind. Songs like "Kill The Director" and "Let's Dance To Joy Division" detonate where the brash impulse of youth and self-deprecating melancholy collide. Laced with three part harmonies and dizzying choruses chronicling tongue in cheek disasters that still manage to seem exuberant and carefree, The WOMBATS have created a collection of thirteen astounding tracks.
