Cool Kids: Freelance Whales - Generator

Remember the good old days?  When everybody got up early and started working?  Even the kids? Well, today on Cool Kids, we've got a song that celebrates good, old fashioned hard work. The band Freelance Whales released their debut album Weathervanes in 2009 and it chronicles childhood memories and adult dreams of bandleader Judah Dadone.  Today's selection, "Generator ^ First Floor", builds in intensity and features a pleasing voice and and even pleasing-er banjo riff.
