    Yellow Ostrich operate in an oddball musical realm; one which is almost as unusual as their namesake. The Brooklyn-by-way-of-Wisconsin outfit is led by singer-guitarist Alex Schaaf; a seemingly normal, floppy haired Midwesterner determined to lead his band through various disjointed flights of guitar, bass, and overblown, percussive rhythms. Schaaf's melodious vocals take wing overhead, and somehow, someway, elements jigsaw together in exhilarating ways. Talk about strangeperhaps why the band's second album in as many years is dubbed Strange Land. As you indulge in our latest concert offering, expect a little freakishness at first, but something that's ultimately both familiar and invigorating. Songs like "Marathon Runner," "Elephant King," and "The Shakedown" grab on to their listeners, demanding they pull their heads out of the sand and get down with what's happening on stage. Though the band was probably on show 17 or 17 at our Launch Pad Party in Austin, their enthusiasm and vigor is for their tunes is easy to see. So step inside the bizarre world of Yellow Ostrich. We think you'll be happy you did.
