I checked out Yellow Ostrich a few months ago when they opened for Say Hi at the The Echo in Silver Lake. They quite possibly upstaged the headliner. The band is made of lead singer and founder Alex Schaaf, with Michael Tapper doing percussions. In the live show, Schaaf records vocals, distinguishable on the record but really impressive in person, which he then loops and plays over, sometimes layering loops upon loops, and then additionally playing live over the recording. Recently joining Barsuk records, you can pick up the album here, download a free song here and check out their tour dates with Ra Ra Riot right here.
