The Great Estates 4:01Release Noteshttp://www.myspace.com/freelancewhalesThis Album is fucking titsFreelance Whales found one another in late 2008, in Queens, amidst a strangeamalgam of unfamiliar instruments, and precariously arranged pop songs. Usingwhatever musical gadgets they happened upon (mostly harmonium, banjo,glockenspiel, synthesizers, guitars, bass, drums, waterphone), the five membersworked at crafting songs with interlocking rhythmic patterns, lush texturallayering, and an engaged group-vocal energy. The result is their debut LP,weathervanes, whose songs work at evoking a sense of dislocation, or sensorydisorientation. They invite the human spirit to exit the body, if only for briefmoments. Freelance Whales can be spotted in the streets and humble venues of NewYork City, and in due time, elsewhereFreelance Whales have managed to channel something eerie, dreamlike, andseemingly autonomous the sum of the players being much more than eachindividual part" - Mark Steffen, HEAVEmediaAmazingly, Freelance Whales are even more arresting live than they are onrecord. They exhibit the exuberance of a young band that feels lucky to besharing ideas with their audience" - Leo Maymind, EarfarmIt just doesnt feel like kids we grew up with should be this free, so wefigure this five-piece has been transported from some alternate universe orsimpler time when being gleeful was more important than anything else." - RCRDLBLIt's awash with gentle, naive bliss, and if you're the type that likes toobserve hooks blossoming with the pace of an actual flower opening, then youmight have just found a new favourite band." - NME
