A couple tracks & instrumentals from the forthcoming album Troubadour. The Lottery EP is available digitally now, with vinyl coming July 2013.

Props to Potholes: “The sonic palate of the Stepkids seems to grow in new and interesting directions with every single they release. While they struck me as a psych rock-leaning outfit at first, the Connecticut trio waltzes into a new territory with “The Lottery”. It’s the latest we’re hearing from their sophomore album, Troubadour, and sounds like the long lost B-side to a Steely Dan single. That’s a compliment of the highest regard, if you ask me, especially because no one is really making music like this anymore.”

And from the heads at Rolling Stone: “The Stepkids ease into a smooth, mesmerizing strut on their new track ‘The Lottery,’ but there’s a lot more involved than just glistening keys and swooning falsettos. The funky, jazzy Connecticut trio also play it cool with delightfully smoky grooves, all the while contemplating life’s big risks and choices.”
