Tenement / Culo - Spilt 7" - Red Splatter Vinyl /100

Cowabunga Records (2011)

Another new Tenement record with 2 new songs, and these ones are rippers (not to be confused with the fabulous hot dogs sold at Rutts Hut). Fidelity-wise, this is probably mid range for Tenement. Not quite as polished as their full length, Napalm Dream, but to me it sounds much slicker than than the material they recently put out on their Blind Wink LP. Most importantly, these songs are just bursting with energy & hooks. The Culo side doesn't do anything for me. I don't really like the kind of screamy hardcore they're serving up. I'm sure people that like that sort of thing may enjoy, but it's not for me. However, Tenement is one of my current favorites, and this 7"s should be bought right away whether or not you plan on playing the Culo side.

I couldn't find any of the Tenement songs streaming online, but their bandcamp page has pretty much every other song they've ever recorded streaming.
