DIY label Stress Carrier out of Scranton, PA just sent over a release catalog of sorts. Heres what I pulled from it:
Fulmarine Petrels - Yes No Minutes Seconds
Fulmarine Petrels, who seem to be one of the label's main focuses, are making an infectious array of lo-fi garage pop with an occasionally small dose of southern country (I think I hear some violin -- maybe is just synth). Think of a Thee Oh Sees that perhaps was a bit unsure of its sexuality and experimented once with folk and kinda liked it. Shits catchy as hell and waaaaaay better than the norm of the identical pop-punk bands spewing from the vagina of the Electric City as of late.
Das Black Milk - Lateral Maneuvers
Das Black Milk are on the darker, post-punk side of the lo-fi garage spectrum. They vibe on the likes of Joy Division, Wire, Bauhaus, etc. but bring a little more experimentation into their song writing and "fuck it"-style vocals. Fun stuff. Very poppy.
