Gather 'round children for the plucky folk stylings of Freelance Whales. This New York indie band traffics in lushly layered tunes featuring chiming xylophones, quacking banjo and assorted wheezing instruments. Perhaps most impressive are their vocal arrangements which make use of several voices and lending the sound a choral quality. Not unlike Arcade Fire or Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Check 'em out.
