About
Web Dating is the latest band featuring Tucker Rountree from Total Slacker.

Press for Web Dating

“Live, Web Dating are a big fat pile of teenage decibels (twenty-something decibels, really) and you’re not spending that much time listening to the words.Then you sit down in front of some computer speakers and there you go, love songs, every last one.” Impose Magazine – The Best Music of April 2011

“Web Dating deal in tight, short pop punk love letters perfectly tailored for the first mixtape you’d give to a special someone.” Vice Magazine

“Built around multiple guitars playing power chords in unison, Web Dating specializes in a kind of heartfelt, high-energy love song.” New York Press

“These melodies (though buried a bit under distorted messiness and lo-fi’s lax attitude towards tune-age) pop with stickiness. It’s all very jubilant and stuff.” Oh My Rockness

“a honest glance at that special gal in your life, and nothing says hey, i really I dig you babe like pressing play on “Can’t Get Enough of You”. Much more breezy than Totz Slackz jams, more straightforward than Chat Room,” FMLY

“These songs are definitely in Rountree’s veins, though they are far away from the Total Slacker veins in his body. “Can’t Get Enough of You” is a poppy dream-scape, moving in and out of dark yet delicate verses. Rountree’s classic guitar training peeks through too, shining with flair.” Microphone Memory Emotion

Press for Total Slacker
“This is a band led by a bowlcut young ponyboy who are running literal circles around all those other reverbed-out surfey-sounding groups and bonking their guitars against the walls of musical limitation as well as actual walls. They used to sell unique, hand burned CDs, each with its own original cover art, but this professionally made 7-inch is even better than those. Mostly in that you can make out all the sounds and words clearly and my computer doesn’t barf it out as unreadable half the time, but also because its got their two best songs at present. It’s a real mistress to magicians and a dancer to the gods. If you get what I’m saying.”
Vice Magazine – Best Album of The Month

“To summarize, it’s a pop for hallucinogenic purposes smoky evenings. Or a real treaty of laziness to the attention of younger generations.”
Rolling Stone France
