It was warm afternoon in the spring of 2010 that we first had the pleasure hearing Male Bonding and their superlative debut, Nothing Hurts. We always remember favorable first listens with resplendent detail and this was no exception. I knew that word of the day calendar would come in handy one of these days. Anyhow, we bought the album at Newbury Comics on our lunch break and rushed back to the car to enjoy a sandwich, some windows down driving, and the remarkable hook heavy debut from Male Bonding. But enough about our lunch time exploits and last years Male Bonding. We are pleased to report that next Tuesday the trio from London's Dalston neighborhood will deliver their sophomore LP, Endless Now on Sub Pop. The new album was recorded with John Agnello at Dreamland Recording Studio in Woodstock, NY. The bands guitar fuzz, scrappy melodies, and big hooks remain intact albeit with a little more confidence and luster. Endless Now features 11 catchy as all hell tracks in just 36 minutes. Below you can check out two of the albums tracks, Bones which you can grab for the high price of your e-mail address as well as an embed of the album's opener Tame The Sun.
Pre-order Endless Now at Sub-Pop.
Male Bonding will play Brighton Music Hall next Wednesday August 31st with Girlfriends and Love Inks.
