The Whitlams with Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Tim Freedman has been a huge influence on me, so talking about his work was bound to happen eventually.

The Whitlams are an incredibly successful Australian band. Over the years, Tim has forged connections with the Australian classical community, leading to shows where their music is performed with orchestral arrangements. This fall they're doing another tour with orchestras across Australia. This clip is from a recent rehearsal, playing their breakthrough, and still most famous, song, No Aphrodisiac. Watching this just jazzes me right up.

I do have one question, though. Tim, what's with the poofy hair?
