TERRIBLE FEELINGS: Backwoods: 7” EP

Jun 06, 2014

It’s no secret the whole “indie rock” thang has been plundered, looted, and wholly defiled by the mega-corporate music machine, but every now and then little bits of fertile green promise pop up amongst the ruins. Such is the case here from a band that infuses that base with bits of swampy pop, varying tempos, chorused guitars, the occasional cowboy twang, and no apparent fear of sounding like an honest-to-goodness band that’s actually trying to write songs instead of playing to pre-approved templates. The results make one pine for the days when songs this catchy could find airplay on terrestrial radio, but also thankful that some folks continue to stubbornly create in a world that devalues such efforts more with each passing minute.
