All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Weathervanes, the debut album from New York City's Queens, to be exact Freelance Whales is built upon the tried and true, 21st century indie pop foundation of quirky loops, banjos, glockenspiels, and clever lyrics.

    Absolutely Amazing!!!

    I am in love with this album. They have a totally unique sound to them, but it is all put together extremely well. Definitely one of my favorite albums I own.
