Listen: Yellow Ostrich — “Ghost”Posted by Cameron LaFlam
Yellow Ostrich are dishing out more new material, with the eponymous track “Ghost” streaming now from their forthcoming EP.
The song is sparsely decorated with light, click-clacking percussion, simple, harrowing chords on the organ and a heart-on-his-sleeve vocal performance. Perhaps an apparition does loom in or around the sonic body that is “Ghost.”
Alex Schaaf, the group’s anchor and main songwriter, has created a number of albums under the Yellow Ostrich moniker. The most recent was 2012′s Strange Land, issued by Barsuk Records.
Ghost comes out Oct. 23 via Barsuk. Check out the song courtesy of Stereogum.
