The great expanse of Wisconsin to this day remains a wild frontier to many. Even to its own sons and daughters, the thought often persists that perhaps there are demons in the woods, or something unknown in the water. It can be no mistake then that Tenement were raised in these woods and drank of this water. Over the course of their nine year career to date, their work ethic and musical ideas have often been attributed to an outsider mentality and a stubborn individualism. The energy they conjur at will might also at times seem just short of some kind of sorcery. Now, with the release of their newest double record, Predatory Headlights, their place in the modern world of music has become distinct. They’re no longer only an obscure punk band from the farthest reaches of society’s consciousness, but also one of America’s great outsider pop groups.
