BIO:

Hailing from Milwaukee, WI – Stock Options draws its influences from sources as varied as Black Sabbath, Bad Brains and DC post-hardcore – a variation which sometimes makes it difficult to confine their sound to one genre, influence or scene. Revered local radio station WMSE said it best when they tweeted: “Come for the instrumental post-rock, stay for the sludge.”

REVIEWS:

"Thanks a lot for sending us the album, but we pretty strictly cover punk, hardcore and some garage. The disc sounds good, but unfortunately it’s outside of our scope. Thanks." – Maximum Rocknroll

"An EP’s worth of some nicely meandering instrumental indie rock. Reminds me somewhat of a less frantic Fourth Rotor—a slow, simmering buildup to some kind of crescendo, scattered through with braces and squalls of feedback. Not sure how much of an appeal it’ll hold for Razorcake readers, but they seem fairly adept at what they’re doing. I can visualize lots of people drunkenly swaying to this stuff in a bar somewhere." – Keith Rosson, Razorcake (http://www.razorcake.org/site/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=26108)

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
