|Trekky Records' Embarrassing Fruits|
When one mentions the North Carolina indie scene, usually bands like Superchunk are the first to come to mind. The band that created Merge Records and helped build upon the now booming music scene in North Carolina truly helped bring indie rock to the forefront. But it's not just any type of indie rock, it's indie rock with a certain nonchalance that sums up what life is like to be a twenty-something adolescent going through the troubles of growing up, falling in love, breaking up, and doing drugs. It's the mid-90's "slack-rock" as some refer to it, but most importantly, it's the sound that Embarassing Fruits continues to build upon in their latest record, "Froniter Justice".
