Chomp - Buddha Jabba Mumma LP

Exit Stencil (2012)

The end of the year is overwhelming me with new great records, throwing my end of the year list into a frenzy. One of the biggest culprits in this is Chomp. From what I gather, this is a side project from some of the guys in Cloud Nothings. This is not a selling point for me, I don't really like that band. What is a selling point for me are the constant Superchunk references I'd see in relation to this record.

It's a similarity I can get behind, though I think Chomp is a bit rougher around the edges, reminding me of Wavves or perhaps Shy Mirrors or W.H Walker a bit at times. Over the course of the record, you go from one fast, energetic pop song to the next. Very little filler on this record and I wish I had picked the album up earlier. I think if I had a chance to spend more time with it, Buddha Jabba Mumma would make a real serious impact on my top whatever list this year. Still, even with only a few weeks to listen to it, I can't see how I could not rank it at least in the top 20. Top notch rock.
