Freelance Whales

Freelance Whales have been playing nonstop since I downloaded their CD Weathervanes last week. I highly anticipate in seeing then at the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco this month. The sounds of FW is intergrated with mass amounts of different collective instruments from guitars, banjos, tambourines, harmonium, and glockenspiels to yes the occasional keyboard and laptop assist. Amidst a strange amalgam of unfamiliar instruments, and precariously arranged pop songs. This five member band worked at crafting songs with interlocking rhythmic patterns, lush textural layering, and an engaged group-vocal energy. The band is also gaining a lot of attention and besides that their label Frenchkiss, already has a great track record of locating bands with quality plus commercial appeal (Passion Pit, the Antlers, Dodos, Local Natives), FW sound is on the surface of a lot 00's Indie Hall of Famers Arcade Fire, Ben Gibbard, and Sufjan Stevens. So check out their sound and let me know what you think. I also want to give the band props for making their whole album available to the public via stream.
