On Tuesday the Brooklyn, New York band Yellow Ostrich will take the stage at the Echo in Los Angeles. They will be joined by Pattern is Movement, as well as Thumpers. Check out the Echo website for more information.
This show is in promotion of their February 25 full length release named Cosmos. Yellow Ostrich is on tour and on their way from a few performances at the world famous South By Southwest Music Conference in Austin, Texas.
Yellow Ostrich's sound is often referred to as "robust," as a way to describe the powerful parts of an overall minimalistic approach. Their rhythmically repetitive distorted guitars and machine-like accurate drums leave a feeling of isolation from the rest of society. Like a human trapped behind the controls of a machine. Meanwhile, the polished vocal harmonies provide a sense of freedom. This combination can make the listener think of driving through the desert or perhaps any lonely road. The feeling of being alone and free engulf the listener.
Yellow Ostrich is going back to the craft of making music for the passion of creating art and a feeling. Yellow Ostrich could be considered a robust talent of lo-fi sonic exploration.
Check these guys out at the Echo on Tuesday, March 18 at 8:30.
