Matthew Loiacono | Kentucky

Now that F45's "upstate porch rock" favorites Kamikaze Hearts are on hiatus, we find ourselves searching for something to fill the void. Thankfully KH mandolin maestro Matthew Loiacono(and Collar City Records honcho) has put together a fantastic sophomore solo effort. Kentucky officially drops next week, but Matthew has put together a great contest that'll get you listening and dissecting right away. The question he is asking all that will listen is "why is the album called Kentucky?" He's offering a full download of the album (available here) and will award $50 to the individual who emails the correct answer. Hints are located throughout the album, so listen closely. Conversely, $50 will be awarded for the "most awesome, yet incorrect" answer. Get paid cold hard cash to listen to great music? Awesome.

Hurry, the contest ends this Wednesday, April 23rd.

At some point Matthew is going to need to get paid for his musical existence, so he's rewarding folks who pay 10 bucks for the limited edition (100 copies) CD version of Kentucky with access to a special website with lyrics, song notes, and bonus material. An amazing deal on its own!
