“Out now, ‘Not So Very Nice’ matches neat guitar tones against expertly pieced together songwriting, with comparisons moving between those early Beach Fossils EPs, Cocteau Twins, and modern bedroom pop artists like Caveotown” – CLASH Magazine

“New York-based artist Tom Gluewicki, best known as his moniker Tender Glue, releases the indie-tinged single “Simple Boys”. A track rife with woozy guitar tones, its indie roots shine through with a gleaming prism of sound.” – Earmilk

“The Brooklyn artist exceeds in monitoring his own pulse for the fantastics in this world, and tying them to the ethereal and monastic inklings deep within the heart.” – Come Here Floyd

“The song is a sweet mix of lo-fi dream-pop combined with reminiscences of 90s college rock and Sarah Record vibes. Touching, nostalgic, powerful.” – Going Solo

“With the bashful melodies, crooning guitar and poignant vocals, it is hard not love this contagious little lo-fi number- and believe me, there is a enough lo-fi to bring a tear to your eye.” – Stereofox

“The smokey track has a lo-fi bedroom quality to it that makes the fragile folk take that Gluewicki is going for seem that much more pure and authentic. It’s a heartfelt track that feels personal and true from start to finish.” – We All Want Someone To Shout For

“A humble self contained work of art that begs to be listened to again and again, With You Here showcases the alt-folk artist’s work in his finest light, the track’s emotional deliverance through distant vocal cries and the vacant thundering percussion leaving you fully drawn to its emotional restraint” – Scientist of Sound

“Soaked in soothing, guitar-led vibes, this minimalistic track reminds me of Kings of Leon’s more ambient works. There’s a powerful quality to Tender Glue’s voice, which cuts sharply but smoothly through the instrumentals.” – Xune Magazine

“Sounding out curling atmospherics that recall Kurt Vile’s great 2011 release ‘Smoke Ring from My Halo” from a few years back, the guitar-based track is also, impressively, a poetic paean of days gone by in the tradition of none other than Dylan or Cohen.” – The Deli Magazine

“Their self-described purpose: ‘Not a person. Not a band. It is music made by an urge to create.’ And that urge to create is about to bring us some good stuff.” – Pancakes and Whiskey

“Tender Glue is a brilliant clash of twang, grit and pop, delivering as many dirty guitar lines and perfectly sparse moments as clever vocals and catchy melodies.” – The Wild Honey Pie

“…the lo-fi elements warm up a minimal no frills approach to his songwriting style, but it’s the person coming through the voice that touches and captivates so wonderfully.” – ELEVTRTRAX

“The soulful vocals and contemplative vibe prove to be particularly effective at evoking emotion from the listener. The track stops whatever you happen to be doing and transports you into Tender Glue’s world.” – Groundsounds

“With an original voice (the sadness of the song is almost tactile), and a tremendous talent for melody, Tender Glue is so unbelievably wonderful.  The production is impeccable.” – Audio Fuzz

“This is one of those albums that gets under your skin, creeping in with its various nuances, until you suddenly stop what you’re doing and say, ‘Wow.’ ” – Soundwaves Review
