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
