Tenement – “Spaghetti Midwestern”

The prolific Appleton, Wisconsin hardcore-affiliated outfit Tenement is the kind of band that’s cool to name-check and might come up with relative frequency at college radio stations, but isn’t all that well-known outside of certain circles. That’s OK, because thankfully in this day and age you really don’t need to be that widely heard for a label to want to put out a rarities LP of your work. Dorks will buy it, myself included. In March, Grave Mistake and Toxic Pop Records will release Bruised Music Volume One, a compilation of Tenement’s out-of-print songs from 2006 through 2009. “Spaghetti Midwestern” is a riotous portrait of suburban disillusionment, the American Dream gone awry. You can listen to it below and check out an interview the band did with Impose here.
