FILTER Grade: 80%

Yellow Ostrich

Alex Schaaf’s musical project Yellow Ostrich (which most recently added bass/horns player Jon Natchez to the mix) breaks out gorgeous harmonies and clean instrumentals on each of the 10 tracks of Strange Land. “Elephant King” begins the sophomore album with a short, yet interesting series of playbacks and overdubs before completely falling right into the pleasant rut of indie-pop rock. While the lyrics are a little repetitive, the catchy rhythms make this a solid album for spring.
