Yellow Ostrich Roosts at Great Scott Saturday Night; Hatches New Album

Yellow Ostrich, who I first talked about back in October of last year, are back in Boston (Allston actually, at Great Scott on Saturday night, March 3) to celebrate the release of their new album, Strange Land, out 3/6 on Barsuk Records.

I spoke of how eclectic and experimental they were on their earlier recordings. They’re even more so now, at least based on one of the singles, “The Shakedown,” which surprisingly (or at least to me) is a pretty straightforward guitar rocker! You can download it from them, but have a listen to another single from the imminent album, “Marathon Runner,” which is more to my personal tastes, but that’s just me. It’ll be interesting to hear the rest of the album, and it’s refreshing to discover another band not beholden to any particular genre.

Also on the bill Sat. night is the duo of Nicolas Snyder and Joshua Sickels, known as 1,2,3 and Old Abram Brown. This stop in Allston is the opening night of Yellow Ostrich’s national tour which takes in SXSW, lands at the Bootleg Theatre in L.A. with Niki and the Dove, and circles back to the Mercury Lounge in NYC on April 12. They’re also playing at Sasquatch in May.

The Paradise Rock Club ~ Thursday, October 20
Doors at 8pm; 18+; Advance tickets $24.50 w/crappy ticketmaster fees

Here’s a very nice line-up, and by “nice” I mean exquisite: the pretty strings-infused chamber pop of Ra Ra Riot, bringing with them Delicate Steve, who has moments when he/they are anything but, and a wonderful newish band called Yellow Ostrich, who have just released their debut album, and who are quirky and strange as all hell. What a lovely combination.
