Standby: The Freelance Whales

Standby :: Freelance Whales from The Window Seat on Vimeo

Is it just me or does this band sound like it should have come out in 2001? Critics be damned, I like the freelance whales! They might be 10 years late to the party, but at least they brought nightcaps!

Judah Dadone formed the freelance whales in 2008 by placing an ad on Craigslist.  He spent several months interviewing musicians all over the city, until he found the perfect people. And instead of playing shows in venues, the freelance whales worked on their sound by performing on the street corners of New York City, just to play in front of people and see what their reaction would be. Turns out the reaction was good, and after self releasing their debt record they were snatched up by indie darling label Frenchkiss Records.
