Freelance Whales - NoiseTrade Sampler (2012)



9.7

/Indie pop, Baroque pop, Alternative pop, Art pop, Americana, Chamber pop, Psychedelic rock/ 

Comment: these 6 tracks are provided by a Queens, NY-based alternative rock quintet, called Freelance Whales who has issued two studio albums so far (Weathervanes; Diluvia). Indeed, these pieces are closely related to the aforementioned albums. However, each track from within it could freely be an A-side or single. Lush guitar chords are mixed up with sublime glockenspiel magic and synthesized sounds and effects. By kindred souls there can be drawn parallels upon the likes of Arcade Fire, Electrelane, Sufjan Stevens, The Antlers.
