TENEMENT RATS: Self-titled: 7”

This six-track album sounds like the perfect soundtrack to a late ‘70s backyard rager. If you love dancing at shows, L.A.-based Tenement Rats has you covered. I definitely got a sassy, garagey Jay Reatard meets The Bananas vibe from this 7” that features members from Radiohearts and The Gaggers. There’s some sweet guitar shredding, especially on intro song “Free to Make a Jail.” Closing song “Cold War Shithole” finishes off the party with the same intensity as the rest of the tracks. –Cynthia Pinedo (No Front Teeth, nofrontteeth.co.uk)
