The repress of Tenement’s second album, The Blind Wink courtesy of Deranged Records. Their first album Napalm Dream was heavy on the high octane catchy punk, and definitely great but The Blink Wink is where the band found their confidence and compiled a very distinct and mixed sounding album’s worth of material. From the Replacements, the Decendents, and the Lemonheads, the influences are obvious and the delivery spot on. I am not sure how a band that is so deeply rooted in hardcore punk ends up creating such a diverse and strong album so early in their ‘career’ but Tenement have managed to comfortably move beyond the confines of the punk song and keep us captivated. “This record is a beautiful oddity.” Razorcake Magazine For US customers - IF you can wait a few weeks for your order to ship out, US customers ordering 5 x records or less can select LIGHT PACKET FLAT RATE for $6.
