Yellow Ostrich - The Morgan Freeman EP

Inspired by Morgan Freeman’s wikipedia page.

This is the claim made by Alex Schaaf, a Maine resident that records prolifically under the name Yellow Ostrich, about his latest free release: The Morgan Freeman EP. I think for most people this sort of production would strain their notion of a concept album, but the EP is at once incredibly catchy and listenable, while consistently bearing out Schaaf’s claim. Track 4 – for example – “Morgan Freeman’s Alleged Relationship With His Step-Granddaughter,” with its wikipedian title, is an emotional exploration of (Schaaf’s?) feelings about the real-life controversy, that ends with the line “Morgan, I think no one understands you.” The Morgan Freeman EP is six tracks of lo-fi folk-pop; glitchy and driven by primitive beats, and ultimately sustained by good songwriting… enjoyable regardless of one’s post-modernist tendencies. Download it and many other releases from the Yellow Ostrich bandcamp.
