The Hottest State Contest

A week and a half ago I talked a little about Jesse Harris' latest project, the soundtrack for The Hottest State. Well, here's your chance to win a copy of the album along with a copy of Ethan Hawke's book that the movie is based on.

The soundtrack has a stellar line-up of musicians including the following:


1) Rocha - "Ya No Te Veria Mas (Never See You)"
2) Willie Nelson - "Always Seem to Get Things Wrong"
3) Feist - "Somewhere Down the Road"
4) Bright Eyes - "Big Old House"
5) Emmylou Harris - "The Speed of Sound"
6) Jesse Harris - "It Will Stay With Us"
7) The Black Keys - "If You Ever Slip"
8) M. Ward - "Crooked Lines"
9) Norah Jones - "World of Trouble"
10) Brad Mehldau - "Never See You"
11) Cat Power - "It's Alright to Fail"
12) Jesse Harris - "One Day the Dam Will Break"
13) Tony Scherr - "You, the Queen"
14) "Morning in a Strange City (Cafe)"
15) Rocha - "No More"
16) Jesse Harris - "Dear Dorothy"
17) Rocha - "Never See You”
18) "There Are No Second Chances"

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment (or e-mail me) with your name and e-mail address and you'll be in the running for one of the two prize packs that I have to give away. I'll choose two winners next Sundayish and notify them via e-mail.
