Freelance Whales Sign to Frenchkiss/Mom+Pop Records
I guess it's only a matter of time before a band like Freelance Whales get snatched up. I mean how many times can a single band be named a "band to watch?" Despite our snarky tone, this is really a fantastic step forward for a great band. Fans and critics pay attention to Frenchkiss, who have quietly been having a fantastic few years. While Freelance Whales can stray one or two steps too far into the Sufjan realm - they are a remarkably consistent group of rural folk-poppers with great songs and a warm nostalgic sound. They are currently on tour with Fanfarlo and are playing the Bowery in New York on December 18th. New LP in Spring 2010. Congrats y'all.
