New York-based Yellow Ostrich's new CD, Strange Land, takes the sound of the first CD, The Mistress, to a new level, adding multi-instrumentalist Jon Natchez and drummer Michael Tapper to singer-guitarist Alex Schaaf's songs and voice. Here's the band's take on the CD "Strange Land has a dramatically expanded one: Tapper’s
inventive, downright catchy drumming provides a polyrhythmic foundation
for many of the songs while Natchez plays no less than eleven different
kinds of horns on the album, lending an almost symphonic air, while his
nimble bass playing helps propel the music." This quote might lead you to suppose that the band will be playing the hippest room in the city and you would be right: YO, plus Strand of Oaks at Zanzabar on November 6. Tickets are mere $6 adv. / $8 DoS.
