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.”


"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)

These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade by Patkus

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. "These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade" is Patkus' third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015's "Colors." Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, "These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade" mirrors Patkus' journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.
