In some ways, even better than their debut, "Weathervanes"
on October 9, 2012
I first found out about freelance whales back in late 2010 with their debut album "Weathervanes". It took me a little while to digest the sickly-sweet melodies and extremely upbeat nature of it, but after a few listens I fell in love. That is now up as one of my favorite albums of all time. I can't listen to it without it somehow lifting my spirits in some way. I didn't think things could get better for a sophomore album, but i was wrong. It is different in that it is slightly less upbeat than the last album, but it is every bit as beautiful. They really outdid themselves with this one. There's a lot less acoustic things going on here, and a lot more electronics and synths. You'll find the same sweet vocals as the last one, which i'm glad they kept here. The best way I can describe this album is that it's ethereal.... just beautiful. If you liked Weathervanes, you have to buy this one. Support this artist, I can't wait to see where they go in the future.
