Earlier this fall, we were very fortunate to welcome Yellow Ostrich, one of my favorite Brooklyn bands, into our Ditmas Park home studio for a highly anticipated ‘Honey I’m Home’ session. Originally the lo-fi bedroom pop creation of frontman Alex Shaaf, the project now boasts a much richer sound with the addition of Michael Tapper (previously of We Are Scientists) on drums, Jon Natchez on horns and Shaaf’s masterful use of his looping machine (which was purposely excluded for this recording). Yellow Ostrich is a recent add to the Barsuk Records family, which re-released their glorious sophomore LP, Mistress. Enjoy both “Hold On” and “Campaign” below.
‘Honey I’m Home’ is a live session series made by The Wild Honey Pie. With each new episode, we welcome a different band into Sounds Like A Fire home studio in Brooklyn and record intimate versions of two or three songs which are given away for free.
