Yellow Ostrich have worked their way into an awesome publicity opportunity, teaming up with SPIN and HP, who are covering their journey to SXSW. You can watch the mini-documentary videos here.

Headed up by Alex Schaaf, the NYC-based band have released three LPs and four EPs since March 2009. They've also recently picked up a third member -- Jon Natchez -- formerly part of Beirut, who contributes with bass and horns.

The track on this post is "Whale," which has a sound mildy reminiscent of something put together by Sufjan Stevens. It's awesomely original, and has definitely inspired me to try and catch them at SXSW.

Their SXSW lineup includes:

-- 3/17 "” BirdDog Promo - The Aquarium - 8:45pm

-- 3/18 "” Muzzle of Bees Backyard BBQ - 3217 1/2 Hampton Rd - 1pm

-- 3/18 "” Billions Official Showcase - Antone's - 10pm
