Album · 2014 · 10 Songs. Brooklyn indie troupe Yellow Ostrich flew under the mainstream radar with their last two albums (perhaps appropriate, considering the band's flightless namesake), but that's likely to change with their ambitious third studio effort, Cosmos. Inspired by thinkers such as Carl Sagan and astrophysicist Frank Drake, the record is as luminous as a meteor shower, its songs featuring momentous crescendos, densely layered guitars, and radiant atmospherics.
While the album embodies a sense of both wonder and isolation, Yellow Ostrich's refined melodies and dense yet delicate sonic textures make Cosmos as powerfully intimate as it is dynamic. The follow-up to Yellow Ostrich's 2012 EP Ghost, Cosmos captures that uneasy tension by merging raw guitar riffs, lush atmospherics, brain-bending electro effects, sweetly ethereal harmonies, and earnest but unsettling lyrics.
