Lead singer/guitarist Alex Schaaf recorded Yellow Ostrich‘s debut album (The Mistress) almost entirely on his own. The multi-layered drum loops and lo-fi bedroom charm of tracks like “WHALE” was somewhat akin to a male-fronted Tune-Yards. Since then, Schaaf has officially turned his one-man project into a group effort by enlisting the help of multi-instrumentalist Jon Natchez and drummer Michael Tapper.

Yellow Ostrich’s sophomore LP, entitled Strange Land, will use this roster to emerge from the bedroom with a more fully-formed, enriched sound. In a press release, Schaaf claims, ”The Mistress was a guy in a bedroom. Strange Land is a band. In a slightly bigger room.” The album will also feature the engineering expertise of Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Sparklehorse).

Strange Land will be released on March 6th via Barsuk. Below, via You Ain’t No Picasso, you can find a live recording of “Daughter”, a track off Strange Land, followed by the album’s tracklist.
