Yellow Ostrich is a way of life, but it wasn't always that way. Band members Alex Schaaf and Michael Tapper had to have their chance encounter, Alex had to move from Wisconsin to NY, and the duo had to transition from a bedroom project into something more band oriented. Getting deep into Neil Young apparently aided the metamorphosis. Now the band have a game changing new album in Strange Land and the balls-to-the-wall (yup, I'm using the term) demands of SXSW to worry about. Have a look, get to know these two dudes, and learn a little bit about what might be instore in the future for this promising, young act.
