Just as The Gaslight Anthem’s The ’59 Sound did in 2008, When the Night Comes revives the ghosts of Springsteen. With a punk rock mentality, unconditional exuberance, and a saxophone; The State Lottery’s 2010 release is an indication that Americana is still very much alive. And booming I might add. From the unrelenting energy of opener “Coming Alive” to extended sing-a-long “Spring, 2008, Detroit,” When the Night Comes is a staggering experience. As young as band as they are, The State Lottery understand their obligation to carry on the Americana legacy, and do a damn fine job of it.

This has a criminally low average rating. It's better than American Slang in my opinion, and one of the best rock albums of the year.

Great fun punk. Great home-grown music, but (just like BTMI!) the guy's vocals might turn away more die-hard fans than it will invite. For the fan of excellent low-budget gold who isn't looking for cleanliness or perfection. 3.7/5

Spring, 2008, Detroit is the kind of song you wish all records ended with

While not as intoxicating as Titus' The Monitor or nostalgic as Gaslight's The 59 Sound, When The Night Comes occupies a comfortable place in the recent uprise of bands bringing pier-walking punk back to the world. Lovable, fun, and endearing.

Americana punk is a genre with few bands and artists to check out, but whenever you find a new one you haven't listened to yet, you know for sure it's gonna be a winner. Heartful performances, gritty vocals, a deep sense of melody and dynamics are elements you would normally expect, but The State Lottery give their formula a lil twist by featuring a mighty saxophone, making sure they would leave an indelibe trace within the folk punk history books. Oh, and the closer is fucking magnificent too. 4.1
