Part Chimp - I Am Come

  • Sale
  • Regular price $12.99

I Am Come is the second album from the UK's Part Chimp, and their second for the label formed by Mogwai, Rock Action. The band are certainly prone to slow, 'Part Chimp Fear Satan' guitar squalls, but where those are emotional crescendos for some bands, they're just interludes between the highlights of I Am Come. 'Bakahatsu' is the prototypical grinding opener. Standing squarely under Mogwai's shadow for 90 seconds, it's just buildup for the sludgy sweet tooth of album peak 'War Machine'. Ringing guitars march forward despite being interrupted by a distorted gallop every four bars, with a melody and rhythm no less effective for their simplicity. 2005.
