LISTEN: Room Full Of Stangers – Ten Thousand EP
The last time Orlando-based Room Full of Strangers raided this side of the Sunshine State, they weirded us out with their unique brand of surfy psych-pop. Tonight, some three months, later frontman Mick Dagger & co. return to The ‘Burg where they’ll celebrate the release of a new EP – Ten Thousand.
As our good friends at TBT* Soundcheck have pointed out, the band is selling copies of the five-track effort for a mere $10,000.
According to a press release, the absurd price tag is a direct reaction to the “trend of giving music away arbitrarily coupled with the immediate gratification of the internet [which] reinforces attitudes and behavior that has partially led to soft record sales and concert attendance.” That’s pretty bold.
Still, the band has made Ten Thousand’s opening track available to stream in its entirety along with 45-second samples from the extended-player’s other four songs. Have a listen to the whole shebang below, and get more information on the band’s CD release show at Local 662 here.
