Male Bonding- Endless Now (Album Review)


“Feeling so much older than I used to feel,” Male Bonding’s John Arthur Webb drawls on “Before It’s Gone,” from the London quartet’s standout second album. Nostalgia for a not-so-distant past has been a consistently effective pose for dazed indie rockers, and Male Bonding know it: Endless Now was recorded in the same upstate church where Dinosaur Jr. made 1993’s Where You Been, and it sounds like a happy refugee from that alt-rock era, all battering drums and youthful, melodic confusion. This extends to the lyrics, nearly all of which are arranged in the form 
of questions. Answers are for grown-ups, and who wants to be one of those?
