TENEMENT stream third track from "Bruised Music Volume One" on Stereogum

"There are tons of incredible bands whose music is just chilling on the top shelf of someone’s closet, collecting dust, because no one ever bothered to reissue it in another format. There’s a certain poetic beauty to that, sure, but if you’re a fan of a band and you can’t track down a song because whatever tape or 7″ it was released on was never uploaded to Bandcamp or whatever, then it’s not cool. It’s annoying. Tenement have been putting out physical albums for nearly a decade, and though the Wisconsin-based outfit is certifiably prolific, their available releases are numbered. The songs included on Bruised Music Volume One were selected from long since out of print EPs, splits, and 7″ records and have been remastered into a ten-track compilation, and we’ve already heard the first two singles, “Spaghetti Midwestern” and “The Fire Is Out.” “Morning Mouth” is the compilation’s latest offering, a spiraling two and a half minutes of theatrical frustration that dangles from the line, 'All I know is the world keeps turning, but I just keep falling down.'"

We have yet another track from the upcoming singles collection LP from Wisconsin's TENEMENT, "Morning Mouth," streaming over on Stereogum now. Morning Mouth originally appeared on the False Teeth 7", and it has been remastered and compiled with nine more early, out of print Tenement tracks on the Bruised Music Volume One LP collection, which will be out on March 10th on Grave Mistake and Toxic Pop Records.

Morning Mouth is the third track we have put up from this collection, and you can give "Spaghetti Midwestern" and "The Fire is Out" a listen as well if you haven't yet.

Tenement have just begun a several week East Coast tour with Don Giovanni Records artists PRIESTS and VACATION, and you can check out those dates below. The band will have copies of the Bruised Music LP with them on this tour, and we currently have the LP up for preorder through both Grave Mistake and Toxic Pop.

Preorders will begin shipping next week, and keep your eyes peeled for a full album stream coming up next week as well.

We are all very excited to get these remastered early Tenement tracks out into the world again, and are thrilled with the response this project has received thus far. Thank you to everyone who has preordered a copy, given these songs a listen, or helped us spread the word in any way.
