The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.
This week I'm covering a group named Freelance Whales. They are an American indie rock band from New York. The band connected on Craigslist and friends of friends. They all pretty much started alone, playing on Subway platforms. The leader of the band is Judah Dadone. There is singing in the band of course and banjo, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, synthesizer, glockenspiel (which are like bells), mandolin, drums, harmonica and bass.
They had a song featured on Grey's Anatomy called Starring. Their song Broken Horse was on One Tree Hill.
Here's a live song. It's pretty cool to see all the different instruments they use.
This song is about birth and death.
