[Listen] Yellow Ostrich - "Marathon Runner"

Less than six months after the release of their debut album The Mistress, New York indie rock outfit Yellow Ostrich are readying yet another full-length LP titled Strange Land. Courtesy of SPIN.com, you can listen to and download the first cut from the upcoming album titled "Marathon Runner," which sees the band melding together a unique combination of tUnE-yArDs-esque vocal looping meets Death Cab for Cutie meets Local Natives. All in all, from the sound of this song, Strange Land should be a fantastic album.
