Why do we like this?
Just the other night, a good friend/roommate and I made a delightful mutual discovery "” in an apartment of Fleet Fox-loving dudes, we were both longtime lovers of rowdy British punk rock. Now, don't get me wrong: I'll never fight anyone on listening to Fleet Foxes. But punk rock may be where my heart lies, particularly the British brand of it, that has managed to keep going strong since the days of the Sex Pistols.

Take Male Bonding. Their second album, Endless Now (out August 30 on SubPop), is rife with the driving drum-bass-guitar speed I associate with punk generally. But their vocals "” smooth, slick, and stylized "” avoid the yelling-instead-of-singing tactic that, when done poorly, can so often be punk's pitfall. Rather, they remind me of the Buzzcocks, maintaining their insouciance (and tempo) while remaining inherently listenable.

This is punk rock with a crispness to its production: done by Male Bonding, it works like a charm.
