Yellow Ostrich

What separates Alex Schaaf from other young and talented young men who have recently found themselves buzzworthy in Brooklyn is the sheer quantity of quality music he's already put out. Recording under the name Yellow Ostrich, the Wisconsin native just released his first full-length album in October, but his Bandcamp site is home to another seven albums, including the Morgan Freeman EP, written entirely from the text of Morgan Freeman's Wikipedia page. - [WNYC]
Yellow Ostrich's Bandcamp also mentions that the above mentioned new LP, The Mistress, will be released in limited edition yellow vinyl on Feb 15th, 2011. Preorder that now via Afternoon Records. Schaaf played Mercury Lounge last night (1/4), and more pictures from that appearance can be found below...

I dont think the appearance of his setup should matter; it just looks like super stressful to setup...especially while the dj is playing some doo wop song and you start to panic because no sound is coming out your guitar

Boy, this Funke is all anybody's ever talking about. So sick and tired of hearing about how brilliant that Funke is. Overrated.
