Video of the Moment #251: Freelance Whales

By on Wednesday, 14th April 2010 at 6:00 pm

Would it be a cliché to say that New York folk/pop band Freelance Whales follow the beat of a different drummer? Wearing sombreros, ponchos and skull masks, the band looks more like they’re preparing for Mexico’s Day of the Dead. The outfits don’t make you think of barren, snowy landscapes, but this quirky video might change your mind. And yes, the watering can I reported in my review of their gig here in D.C. on 06 March? It’s in here too.


‘Weathervanes’, the debut album from Freelance Whales, is released today, 13 April, on Frenchkiss Records / Mom and Pop. It appears from their Web site that the album is already on back order – yikes!
