2009 CMJ Favorites & "Band To Watch"
Look Out For Debut LP Spring 2010
NPR : "Freelance Whales: Busking to the Big Time"
Stereogum : "Band To Watch" - "There's palpable warmth and tactful touch that crackles throughout their strongest tunes's group chants, harmonies, occasional computer beats and baroque-pop arrangements that should prove irresistible..."
Brooklyn Vegan, CMJ- "The band's varied indie-pop has a humble, homespun quality to it. They lean on banjos and xylophones for tender rural sounds but also use glitchy and elecro backing to good effect."
Oh My Rockness : "Band To Watch"- "....create a pretty optimistic and highly singable world that sounds a little bit like melodic magic. It sounds like Disneyland."
Paste Magazine "Band To Watch" :
Ear Farm : "Introducting..."
NME, CMJ: "Radar At CMJ NYC Part 2"
