Research Freelance Whales, and you'll come up with a wealth of blog buzz about this young Brooklyn collective who've only been playing together for a little over a year. From their experimental instrumentation to their affinity for ghost stories, to their habit of playing on New York subway platforms, they've built up a healthy layer of folklore to match their homemade aesthetic.

Freelance Whales are soooo noughties. When I listen to Weathervanes I can’t help but envisage some thick-rimmed glasses, sweater-vest and Converse wearing teen digging the latest Death Cab For Cutie or Hawthorne Heights tracks on MySpace (I hasten to add I am not envisaging my younger self). Freelance Whales could have been pretty popular in 2003 or 2004, but in 2010 there seems much less of a market for this breed of earnest, lightweight indie-pop.

Purchasing Weathervanes from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
