Knapsack: Silver Sweepstakes LP+CD
Originally released in 1995, "Silver Sweepstakes" was the debut album for the California quartet, Knapsack. The band dwelled somewhere in the grey area of emo, post-hardcore and indie rock, "Silver Sweepstakes" definitely being the grittiest of their three albums, nonetheless staying mostly on the more melodic side. Knapsack may not have made an impact the size of Quicksand or Samiam or the like, "Silver Sweepstakes" is still a great document of the mid-90s sound. Red/black/white marble vinyl in full colour sleeve with insert and CD version of the album.
