Call of the Freelance Whales attracts Dew Process   18 June 2010

New York five piece Freelance Whales met through a bashful ad on online messageboard Craig’s List posted by their frontman Judah Dadone simply saying “Would anyone like to interact with this sound, or be a part of it?” accompanied by a single track. 50 interviews and three months of schlepping across New York later, the band of multi-instrumentalists had formed with Kevin Read, Doris Cellar, Jake Hyman and Chuck Criss completing the circle.

Freelance Whales are not ones to follow the usual path of a band’s discovery. They play everything from theramin, to banjo, to glockenspiel, to watering can and anything else in between. Their first shows were busking on the streets of the Lower East Side, followed by a residency at Farm Colony - a dilapidated geriatric ward in Staten Island, where the chill of winter nights seeped in and ghosts were rumoured to haunt the grounds.  

With their debut album, “Weathervanes”, completed, Freelance Whales had the New York crowd at CMJ all a flutter. The band inked a deal with a US indie label French Kiss/Mom & Pop, before Freelance Whales blew away SXSW and the Dew Process team and we welcomed them to the burgeoning fold.

“Weathervanes” is due out on Dew Process in September.

I absolutely love Weathervanes have since it's release last year. I really am looking forward to some gigs by the Freelance Whales in Australia soon.
