MRML had the great honour of offering up the very first E.P. by Plymouth, UK's I Am Chimp (see HERE), which we described as "sorta like The Fall meets Napalm Death". Now IAC have honoured MRML so much further by naming their new 12" after us. It only sweetens the deal that it's both the E.P.'s title track and the band's catchiest song yet. (Hence my first - and hopefully last use of 'autoplay').
While "I Am Toaster" hearkens back to the terse, rough sound made famous on their debut, Music Ruined My Life finds the band expanding its musical boundaries. Whether it's the hookiness of the title track, the post-punk moodiness of "He Came Before the Storm" or just the fact that this six-songer is SIX TIMES longer then their three-track debut, this EP proves that these chimps aren't chumps. In fact, I'd dare say that if David Lynch had remade Planet of the Apes after he did Eraserhead, this would've been the perfect soundtrack!
