TENEMENT: Blind Wink: LP

This record is a beautiful oddity. While it might not have been as essential if the impact of Napalm Dream was still in the air, as a continuation of that record, it feels just as important. In a perfect world, Tenement would release an LP every year, and the awe-struck astonishment of this band’s creative capability would last forever. On this outing they may stray further from the Midwest punk comfort zone. But who doesn’t like to get a little adventurous? Due to hours and hours of over-analyzing records and bands, sometimes it’s hard to see past the clichés and trends. But, in the most refreshing way possible, this music makes me feel like a human.
