Listening to Freelance Whales while my yummy turkey chili is cooking. Their debut album came out this year and has really received quite a bit of notice for their unique multi-instrumental experimentation and wonderful harmonic vocals. They really are a delight. If you like The Postal Service or a little Sufjan Stevens then chances are you will probably swoon for Freelance Whales.

Dinner time, enjoy.

    i saw them open for fanfarlo and they were delightful! they have an almost innocent enthusiasm on stage and they play really wacky instruments. i was also impressed that they covered “7/4 shoreline” by broken social scene and it came off really great.

    Awesome! Yeah I could see how they would be a perfect opening act for Fanfarlo. I love that they use all these strange instruments, it is refreshing. Would love to see them in action. :-)

    Interesting; I’d never heard of either the Freelance Whales or turkey chili. Every time I stop by here I leave so enriched!

    Like the music, will pass on the turkey chili.

    Sorry I’ve haven’t had a chance to stop by sooner Rachel, got a promotion at work and even more crazy busy than before. Hope you’ve been doing well, and say hi to Pip for me.

    Yay! Congrats on the promotion, not so much on the extra work though. Hope a raise came with it. Cheers!

    You should totally try my turkey chili, you would be surprised. :-) It is ground turkey.Yum!

    Greetings from a regular reader in Denmark!

    If you like it HOT, try Smokin’ Scoville’s Turkey Chili – it too goes very well with Freelance Whales :-)
