Before grunge-era revisionism became a stylistic hot topic amongst today's indie ranks, UK noise-pop trio Male Bonding were ahead of the curve two years earlier on Endless Now, their sophomore effort on Sub Pop that chomped the band’s teeth away at fuzzed-up punk and power-pop simplicity. The LP proved the London-bred rockers to be well-studied under a fashion more American in the guise of blink-182 or the Lemonheads rather than three rockers from Britain's post-punk capital, but on their first new listen since Endless Now’s release, Male Bonding embrace their hometown sound. “It’s Called Structure” is the first listen off something Male Bonding have planned in the near future -- possibly their next LP -- due out on Paradise Vendors Inc., and as the title might suggest, the trio are smoothing out their angles and retooling them with cleaner hooks, minus the messy feedback. Hear the newly re-organized Male Bonding below...
