Goth, post-punk
Out of the near-impenetrable darkness of Carbondale, IL, emerges STARING PROBLEM, a pretty good band. While their ideal aesthetic is one of unrelenting goth-as-fuck punishment, their "pop sensibility," shaky grasp of the fundamentals of their instruments (at least in the drummer's case-- Lauren's self-deprecation is out of control and Jake likes his bass "because it's orange"), and general good humor and love of beer prevent them from ever being fully subsumed by the darkness.
