Tenement: Dreaming Out Loud
Hailing from Appleton, Wisconsin, Tenement make some truly unique music, and are one of the more interesting bands floating around in the punk rock world these days. These three young Midwesterners write catchy, upbeat and blown-out songs that blur the lines of punk and indie rock. While some of their initial recordings drew inspiration from bands like Husker Du, the Replacements and Dinosaur Jr., their energetic, catchy punk and fuzzed-out songs take time to slow down and delve into shoegaze-inspired dirges or lo-fi pop territory. It's got bits and pieces of all the old bands and records you grew up on but also has a willingness to create something new.
We are excited to host Tenement at this year's Total Fest as they charge through on a tour of the west. If you haven't yet heard them, be sure to stream their previous albums "The Blind Wink" and "Napalm Dream" from their bandcamp page.
