Fistfuls of Sand by The State Lottery 7" (2012)

Kind of Like: Titus Andronicus, Restorations, The Sidekicks, Kite Party
Genres: Indie, Punk, Folk, Pop Punk, Rock
Buy: Salinas Records or Answer Key Records

These two new songs from the State Lottery shows them trying their take at having "walls of sound".  Instead of being mainly a punk/pop punk band, these songs have a ton of folk/indieness to them that I really enjoy.  It makes me wonder if they are working on a full length/ep, and if so, is this the direction it will be going in?  At reminds me a bit of Kite Party's Baseball Season, which is not bad at all seeing as how that was one of my favorite albums last year which I still spin quite a bit still.

This was recorded in Detroit at Roshambo Records, which is also where The Summer Pledge did some of their recording for their latest full length we featured on here a week or so ago.

This was featured on, which is a great resource for finding new music and is also run by people from The State Lottery.
