FREE MP3: Yellow Ostrich - The Shakedown


Have you met Yellow Ostrich yet? This homegrown act was started in Appleton by Alex Schaaf, and it's one more thing we can add to the "Awesome Things From Wisconsin" list. It's the modern story of musical success: While a student at Lawrence University, Alex recorded The Mistress under the moniker Yellow Ostrich. The hype machine that is the indie music blog world loved it, he played a bunch of shows, and got signed to indie label Barsuk Records. Next logical step? Alex collected a couple folks to turn Yellow Ostrich into a full band, and they'll be releasing a new album, Strange Land, on March 6th. You can download one of their new songs, "The Shakedown," for free below. If "The Shakedown" and previously released "Marathon Runner" are any indication, we can expect to hear a tougher sounding album this time around.

Yellow Ostrich will be performing in Madison at Der Rathskeller on March 9th. Download their song "The Shakedown" below.


 

In case you missed it, you can also snag their song "Marathon Runner" for free too:
