I am not easy to shock or surprise anymore when it comes to music. But sometimes a band with gumption will do something so unorthadox that it cannot help but take me aback a little. Like when Radiohead was giving out "In Rainbows" for a donation, or when Bishop Allen released an EP a month for an entire year. I mean, those are a game changers. I purchased every EP that Bishop Allen put out, even the hard to find "August" live in concert one. And still to this day, they are one of my favorite bands. And Radiohead just readjusted the perspectives of all the music executives in the world with that ingenious stunt.
This band did one of those things. Steel Train is a New Jersey band that I try support but have not ever really championed (I do now). I was a fan because the lead singer is one third of the creative force that is the band fun. whom I love immensely. But, back to the point, outside of their self-titled album being fairly fantastic, they did something that I have never seen before.....
