Since Outside Lands sold out for the first time ever this year, I bet you are looking for options! Well, there is an amazing double header at Hella Jelly Warehouse in Oakland on Saturday, August 11th! The great Kimya Dawson and her former Moldy Peach associate Only Son will be tickling your ears, and SpinningPlatters [...]
In case you didn’t know, Sasquatch is both Washington State’s most mythical cryptid and one of its highest acclaimed music festivals. It helps that it takes place in what might have been statistically proven to be the most beautiful place in the world, but the festival consistently books some of the best and most buzzed-about acts in the game, too. You might not catch a glimpse of Bigfoot himself (we hear he doesn’t like crowds), but you’ll definitely catch some fantastic bands, both established and on the verge of breaking out. If you’ve got no idea what you’re doing this [...]
Yellow Ostrich is bound to kick off the Sasquatch weekend with their new, more complete sound.
Remember being a kid and having one of the most incredible imaginations ever? Pretending to be a rock star and being inducted into the hall of fame? Being a ninja and fighting against an evil emperor who wanted to take over the world? Or being secret-agent spies who patrolled the neighborhood? The Yellow Ostrich video for [...]
I forgot to share this really dope video with you guys. Yellow Ostrich released his sophmore record, Strange Land , recently and “Marathon Runner” is the uplifting 1st single. The video features two kids who are going through life’s wild and unpredicable journey. While they are unsure of what they want to do, they can’t wait for all the impeccable adventures. I really want one of those lime green YO snapbacks. Get Strange Land now . Yellow Ostrich - “Marathon Runner”
Barsuk Records is excited to debut the video for Yellow Ostrich "Marathon Runner," from the band's latest full-length, Strange Land. The clip, which was directed by Matthew Lessner, premiered on Noisey, Vice's new music video channel. The name Matthew Lessner might ring a bell: he released the feature "The Woods" last ...
Yellow Ostrich - Marathon Runner
Because I'm indecisive and because both these videos are awesome there are two videos this week. "Marathon Runner" by Yellow Ostrich is quite a bizarre video, yet there's something about it that makes you keep watching. They take a hint from Animal Collective in the production of this video with the ambiguous plot line and short takes. As one youtube user says, "It's quite simple. They're karate ninja children guarding the sacred milk." See for yourself... "Black Girls" by [...]
A new video came out last week for Yellow Ostrich 's "Marathon Runner" off Strange Land (Barsuk) featuring creepy kids in masks. Directed by Matthew Lessner - this video feels like a blast from the past with vague reference to what I believe is Freddie Kreuger or the Hulk- in short, it rules.

I've watched this video for Yellow Ostrich's excellent song "Marathon Runner" a few times now, and I'm not sure I get it. Then again, maybe there's nothing to get. Or maybe I'm not cool enough. Doesn't really matter, because it's got kids on bikes and gold masks and sweet martial arts moves and and an [...]
In this edition: Graceland turns 25, consider new offerings from Prinzhorn Dance School and Royal Headache, and this week's videos. Paul Simon's Graceland turns 25 For anyone who was around when Graceland was released, the first reaction to this news is: where did the time go? Middle-age crisis aside, the anniversary marks an important event in modern rock history, and Sony Legacy is commemorating this occasion by offering several versions of the album (Box Set, [...]

We've been following Yellow Ostrich for a number of years now. In fact Alex Schaaf was one of the first musicians to get in contact with us, that was back in the day when his project was called The Chairs. My how times have changed. Alex, the bedroom musician, is now a trio with Michael Tapper and Jon Natchez and the band is signed to the coveted Barsuk Records with two full length albums under their belt. The addition of two more musicians has been a good one for the overall sound of the band. [...]
Emergency style adjustments need to made this weekend. Currently scouring eBay for one of those steezed out American flag windbreaker/jacket garments, along with a gold-plated incognito mask. Outfit just oozes power. Actually now that I think of it, a certain teenage phenomenon pulled off half of this look a few months back and killed the game. Anyways, incognito masks aside - this song continues to blow me away. You'd think in today's age of complete musical attention deficit disorder I'd move on after a month or two of listening to the same song (hit the original post here), but I [...]
Remember " Marathon Runner ," the audibly overwhelming (but in the most pleasant way possible) song by Yellow Ostrich ? The distracted quality of the song has been translated into some somewhat unsettling visuals. Kids are shown with glittery masks and claws getting up to know good, but probably nothing compared to the hoodrat shit you got into as kids, right? Check it out below. ( Prefix )
