Freelance Whales Announce 2011 Spring Tour With Foals

Entertainment Weekly - "Still holding your breath for the next Postal Service album? Listen to Weathervanesinstead: It's the best electronic indie-pop debut since Ben Gibbard last tuned his laptop"

NME - 7 out of 10 - "It's awash with gentle, naive bliss, and if you're the type that likes to observe ... then you might have just found a new favourite band."

Spin "WHY THEY MATTER: This kitchen-sink collective builds from a heartbreaking quiver to a cinematic sprawl with a grace reminiscent of Broken Social Scene."

NPR
"Freelance Whales' members make music that's undeniably quirky and fun. But the instrumentation isn't a gimmick: The band produces textured music with powerful rhythms and a keen sense of melody."

All Songs Considered "Freelance Whales at the Paste Magazine day party. This band has a fantastic energy, lots of charm, incredible harmonies. You'll be hearing a lot more from them this year."
