Freelance WhalesOctober 1, 2009
Freelance Whales have been on my ears for the last few weeks but with all the gigs recently only getting around to them now. No matter since I think we will be hearing quite a bit more from them!
Similar to quite a few groups that I like in that they seem to use any old instrument lying around and that is where the magic lies in creating an unusual sound. Generator 2nd Floor is a harmonious, driving, syncopated tune that will not just have the toe tapping and the head nodding but it may even get you dancing with a bit of glee! Ghosting is a bit quieter but has the same excellent harmonies and instrumentation.
There is not a huge amount of information out there on them but no surprise that I came across them on the excellent RCRD LBL…which means that I won’t be rehosting the tunes so click here now to get them! Check out their MySpace on where to get their lp Weathervanes.
For the one-clickers here is a live and more acoustic performance…
