TELL ME I LOOK STUNNING AND CADAVEROUS.

Freelance Whales are like Arcade Fire for your little sister, only your little sister is in college now and she's actually pretty cool and has tons of hot friends. Their excellent debut album Weathervanes is all stirring nostalgia for the effervescence of youth and tracks like bookend album highlights "Generator ^ First Floor" and "Generator ^ Second Floor" sound like that simultaneously beautiful and tragic moment you realize that shit, lil' sis might actually be cooler than you are.

Damn, I was coming here to leave a comment identical to ryanparker.

PMA loves Neon Gold. Your releases, as well as the artists you guys recommend. Like Ryan said, almost everything you guys recommend is fantastic ear candy.

Don't stop :)

That's gotta be one of your best paragraphs ever. "shit, lil' sis might actually be cooler than you are". Brilliant.

I want some fucking Horchata now.
