Lottery Winners On Acid
the band: The Crimea
the label: Shiny Beast

Davey Crockett?s back, the sun is out and the proverbial pop party has restarted. As the subtleties grow stronger, the pure adolescent rush of ignominious joy knowingly straddles the line of genius/madness.
The Crimea have recorded a blast of Hawaiian ecstasy slowly devoured by lyrical masterpiece. ?Lottery Winners On Acid? resists the temptation to dumb things down and rather than drill eardrums through noize, they are enticed by lofi strawberry flavoured sugar pop. Sweet. Alas the return will herald an important point of reference.
