The Maryland band surprise-released their new album Floridada by playing it over the speakers of BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, the 23rd-busiest 1 airport in North America, during the pre-Thanksgiving rush. (The album will come out for everyone else on November 30.) As Matt Baetz, cousin of AmCo’s Avey Tare, wrote on Instagram 2 , the album ” can be heard best in the bathrooms, some observation areas, pre-security and the big lounge after security .” Until 6 p.m.

this random airport is the East Coast’s hottest club.
