TENEMENT: Bruised Music, Volume One: LP

A collection of previously released songs from these Wisconsin rabble-rousers! I have been patiently waiting for this, and I was not disappointed. Raw riffs, catchy song titles, and all that you would normally expect from this power trio. The one-two punch of “Sitcom Moms” and “Spaghetti Midwestern” is formidable, but the quality control stays in the red until the last note. The harmonies seem to be a bit tighter on this platter and the drums are a bit more in your face. Besides, any band that has a song called “Icepick” is worth checking out, don’t you think?
