Amazon.com: 4.3 out of 5 stars 4 reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend 3 April 2014
By Jonaroni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
To any rock, indie rock, and pop fans I recommend Yellow Ostrich highly. Their past 3 albums and EPs have kept me and my ears on their toes. I pre-ordered, Cosmos and was instantly hooked. Especially after seeing them perform most of these songs live, I was pumped to be able to listen to the studio versions.
Stop waiting to find your new favorite band, it's this one right here. I also recommend you go grab their "Ghost" EP as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yellow Ostrich, matured and polished. 25 Feb. 2014
By Jason Kleeberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wisconsin native Alex Schaff has come a long way in just a few years. From recording in his bedroom with a 4-track recorder to signing with Barsuk in 2011 while on tour, his band Yellow Ostrich (which started out primarily as a solo effort) has evolved in both sound and personel. Jared Van Fleet and Zach Rose joined the band for Yellow Ostrich's third effort, 'Cosmos'.

Modeled around the themes presented by Carl Sagan's book of the same name, which makes vast ruminations about how small our part in this universe really is...Yellow Ostrich's 'Cosmos' becomes a bit confusing in how personal and intimate certain parts feel. While the book is primarily about the mysteries of space, this album is about the personal unknown. "You're my mystery/you're my great unknown/you're my foggy night/you're my open door", Schaff croons over fuzzy guitar riffs on Any Wonder. While the themes get heavy here, the music is definitely down to Earth.

My favorite track on 'Cosmos' is My Moons. "My moons bring me silence/and I am glad for it, I am glad for it/your smile brings me sadness/but I do long for it, I do long for it", he proclaims, over a droning beat reminiscent of something the Tender Buttons might have come up with in their later years.

This is an ambitious album. It's more cohesive than Strang Land, and more polished than The Mistress. It's filled with equal parts melodic indie rock and understated space. It opens with Terrors, and crests and swells throughout it's 10 tracks, finally bringing us back to Earth with the closer, Don't Be Afraid, which quietly rolls to a close, and spits us back into the real world.

My two favorite tracks: My Moon, Any Wonder

My two least favorite track: Terrors, How Do You Do It
5.0 out of 5 stars Yellow Ostrich Rocks the Cosmos. 26 Feb. 2014
By Eric and Sherrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Carl Sagan was one of my favorite authors as a kid so I was a little worried how this album might fit into my Cosmos -- or at least my mind's version. "Terrors" the first song is not how I would have thought the Cosmos should begin, but after listening to the song I was brought back to the start of Sagan's Cosmos about how frightened and scary comets, eclipses and other celestial events were for humans. The riffs in "Terrors" reminded me of the tribal dances around the fires hoping that the sun would come back.

"Neon Fists" is a like a punch in the head to get over the terror and find a way to escape via non-conventional routes. "There are walls and there are windows, but I'm not afraid of them because I get stuck trying to tear down all the doors...". The melodic and complex sounds mix well and great to listen to while gazing at the night sky.

"Shades" one of my favorites and is a introspective song that I really enjoy for it's rough sound and makes me think of how overwhelming the whole world can feel. The crescendos and fades are fantastic in "shades" ... "pull the shades down and never let go".

"My Moons" really slows things down with some some unusual percussion sounds. "My moons bring me silence / and I am glad for it. Your smile bring me sadness / and I do long for it." The song has a fuzzy spacey sort of sound that makes me think of all the things we may never understand in our Cosmos.

"You are the stars" couldn't be more fitting with a funky beat and melodic singing. How could you not love a song that alludes to Sagan's famous description of how we are all made of star dust? This song turns the concept around to a less self-centered idea and it rocks with some wild mix of sounds which I really liked at the end ... a mini-super-nova.

"In the dark" has an eerie feel of drifting through the dark of our own confusion..."I can't wait 'til you see it all." The drums and the piano added to the drifting and roaming feel with the gentle guitar blended in was like icing on a cosmos cake.

I won't ruin it by telling you how it all turns out. You should buy it and discover the Comos yourself!

3.0 out of 5 stars eccentric & quirky, multifaceted indie pop 27 Feb. 2014
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
3rd album from New York band—eccentric & quirky, multifaceted indie pop with a diverse, eclectic
& complex core that mixes vocal harmonies, psychedelic riffs, softly surreal hooks, electronic
trip-pop, layered atmospheric synthesizers, avant-folk indie noise ballads and soaring swirls of
melody. Like a mix of Splashh, Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Of Montreal, Local Natives, Stars,
Bombay Bicycle Club.
