ROB SEZ: Find out why indie music fans in Wisconsin & environs have been raving about Tenement, the band fronted by Amos Pitsch, for a decade. Think Hüsker Dü or Minutemen: pop-hearted music with punk (at times even hardcore) guitar fervor, fronted by a guy with ragged-but-right vocals. The Odds & Sods comp shows off Pitsch's pop & country leanings. BIG THANKS to Amos & a few other generous souls for sharing these tracks. Snag a FREE 5-song live set by Tenement HERE at Bandcamp. Speaking of Bandcamp, don't you want to hear & buy the complete Predatory Headlights Demos in lossless-quality? If so, you'll need to go HERE.
