After a couple years of spouting embarrassingly-unfulfilled promises of an impending new album, I'm excited and relieved to announce that tracking on Amerikindasorta, the fourth all-original studio album by Vinegar Creek Constituency, is now complete! 

Of course, this doesn't mean the album is finished, and I mean not by a long shot. There is still additional mixing, mastering, graphic layout, disc pressing, radio promotion, new merchandise, and yada yada yada to be accomplished and funded. This means that before I can actually get albums in your actual hands, I've got to put money in the actual hands of top-notch recording engineers, photographers, videographers, graphic designers, disc manufacturers, and the goldang US government. I have no choice but to place the fulfillment and quality of the finished product in the helping hands of our awesome fans (and yes, so sorry, this means you might have to put down your beers for a hot minute). Guys! Help!

I've designed this campaign not as handout receptacle but as a mercantile of sorts, your one stop Amerikindasorta shop. That is to say that as in any traditional capitalist enterprise, your money will buy you goods and services. Check out the rewards section of this page to see all the cool stuff you can purchase- everything from a simple copy of the album to a full-band house concert with many tiers in between. The kicker is that in this case you're not just buying our stuff- you're acting as our record label! As the campaign progresses, I'll be adding new and exciting rewards, one-day-only special offers, etc, so stay tuned! 

I'm confident we can count on you, dear friends, for the love and support you've shown us from the start. Thank you in advance; we can't wait to share this new music with you! 

Love, 

-Leo

    Digital song request

    Have you ever thought, "Boy, I'd sure love to hear Leo sing 'MacArthur Park'?" People often suggest or request songs they'd like to hear me perform, and this reward presents the opportunity to have your request fulfilled. I will record one cover song of your choice in my home studio and send you an mp3 file to listen to as often as you like. Please don't be cruel (although I'll happily record "Don't Be Cruel" if that's your jam). *For legal reasons I'll point out that these recordings are rewards for a fundraising donation; I am not selling other peoples' copyrighted material.

    Leo DiSanto solo house concert

    I'll croon about the moon at your house party, bar mitzvah, family reunion, bris (please don't), or wherever you want me as a soundtrack. I'll drink your beer and eat your food if you want, or I won't if you don't. I will provide all necessary sound equipment. Willing to travel within reason (I like to travel, and my sense of "within reason" is pretty broad, especially if you live somewhere cool).
