Glide Review - Male Bonding - Endless Now

Afternoon all,

I have a new review posted by the nice fellas over at Glide

Give it a read right C'HERE!!!!

It is of Male Bonding's newest release Endless Now

I alluded to it in the review, but I can not get behind that bands name.  Granted names for bands are trickier then actually writing songs in some cases, I mean there have been some horrible band names to have hit songs...(Note to RtBE that is a future blog post) and Male Bonding is pretty blah.

The group themselves are intriguing playing a brand of lo-fi punk that is very catchy, and usually I find myself more drawn to these types of bands.  While I recognize the album is well done and stands up for it is suppose to bring across (hence the 3 and 1/2 stars) it is hard for me to really say I love these songs or will listen to them much in the future.  I think that is one of the hardest things about reviewing music, recognizing positive attributes in albums you don't particularly care for.  It would have been unfair to rate the album any lower on the Glide rating scale, but I doubt it ends up on my year end "Best of" list.

The album is solid, not spectacular, give a listen to some of the tracks here:
