Terrible Feelings
Terrible Feelings
After infinite discussions concerning aesthetics, lyricism and musical preferences, “Terrible Feelings” was chosen as the most fitting name for this musical outfit, which saw the light of day sometime late summer 2009, in Malmö, Sweden. Whilst the band may have its origins in an eternally blossoming punk scene, Terrible Feelings represents so much more than that.
With music and lyrics rooted in 70s devil-worshipping hard rock and 80s spleeny new wave, Terrible Feelings play a sophisticated and gloomy mixture of power pop and punk.

Maximum Rock n Roll had the following to say about their single “Impending Doom”:

“There is a chance that this may be my new favorite band, which is a bold claim to make from a measly two song record. ... It’s difficult to write and produce a two song 45 that people will actually listen to more than a couple times, but this record has me flipping the thing over and over repeatedly because these two songs are both fucking amazing. The music is upbeat and poppy, but the lyrics are about complacency and forgetting about your dreams. This will definitely be one of my favorite records of the year and hopefully there will be enough bleak winter months over there to inspire a full LP.”

After having been biding time for the majority of 2009 and 2010, the band released not one, but three singles in 2011, on both European and North American shores, to wide critical and public acclaim. The band also completed three European tours that same year, and shared stages with acts such as JeFF The broTherhood, YussuF JerusAleM, and nighT birds, and was hand-picked by Fucked up to open on the Scandina- vian leg of their fall tour.

2012 will see the release of “Shadows”, Terrible Feelings’ debut full length. The album was recorded at Tambourine Stu- dios in their hometown, in January 2012. Co-producer Erik Sunding spurred them to use more than ten different guitars and amps, a quirky violin bass played over a massive amp from the 70s, old beat up drums, farfisa, hammond, piano and tons of rippling percussion. The outcome is 12 quite different songs, somehow all tied together by a common notion; walking hand in hand towards a bleak future. For those with a weakness for melancholic yet danceable punkrock, this record might just prove to be an essential staple in any collection.
Sickoids
Sickoids
I was fortunate to see the second SICKOIDS show in April, and I was sufficiently floored. They have clearly spent some serious time studying the guitar tones of the '80s greats, and have managed to combine classic Midwest hardcore and UK anarcho punk into one magical tone that shines through even on this rough demo recording. The SICKOIDS' sound lands nearby - with elements of legendary US hardcore colliding with modern melody and an approach clearly rooted in UK punk (PENI is heavily represented in most aspects of this recording, even the US hardcore bits). The players here are top notch (members of WITCH HUNT, DIRECT CONTROL, GOVERNMENT WARNING and CRACKS, among others), but previous bands be damned when I heard this shit, and this demo just serves to make me excited for future vinyl releases.
Moon Women
Moon Women
After 2 singles (1 tape, 1 vinyl) and only 1 year in existence, Moon
Women have found themselves at the nucleus of Philly's burgeoning Post-Punk scene (Post Post Punk?). This title is both apt and utterly meaningless. They've been likened to bands such as Mission Of Burma, Echo & The Bunnymen, Magazine (whom they've covered) and The Cure but have a created a style all their own: Music which is rooted in the exploration of sound as apposed to retro posturing.
