Male Bonding Make Their Bones

We couldn't sidle past a passed out prostitute in Dalston last year without hearing something from Male Bonding's debut LP Nothing Hurts, and it was deserved too - they were one of the best live acts doing the UK rounds in 2010, and the album itself was full of gritty yet fun garage rock gems. The first half of 2011 has been very quiet for the trio (not saying they were idle - collaborations with Frankie Rose and Rivers Cuomo (?) were put down...), but this is about to change with news that their sophomore effort Endless Now being prepped for release on August 30, once again through Sub Pop. Not resting on their laurels then, which is good. And they haven't wasted time giving us a taste either. 'Bones' is a longer number, but is fast, furious and quintessentially Male Bonding. Verdict - very very good, and a pleasant surprise!

Male Bonding - Bones
