Gotta love the vintage Sub Pop-style artwork on this one. Great touch.

8/10 Mike Staff review, 07 February 2012

Gotta love the vintage Sub Pop-style artwork on this one. Great touch. On Male Bonding's version of 'Aneurism' (recorded by “Rory Bratwell”, lolz) they've simplified the guitar lines and fuzzed everything up, with drifty low-in-the-mix vocals lending it a bit of a shoegaze feel, especially in the verses. There's some extra vocal stuff going on towards the end, too. It might not be as good as the original but at least they're not attempting a carbon copy of it. Flip it and EMA's doing a five-minute-plus live take on 'Endless Nameless', opening with a build-up of insistent drums and overdriven guitar, soon to be joined by some shouty vocals and squalling feedback. There's something genuinely unhinged about this barely-recognisable cover that's quite alluring. It's so loosely-structured and obnoxious that it's very hard not to take a shine to it. These are both interesting reinventions, and will no doubt help prevent the Nirvanas from eventually drifting into long-forgotten obscurity. Props to these guys for keeping this underappreciated music alive.
