With Yellow Ostrich and Blair
If the band's name sounds similar to Say Hi To Your Mom, you're on the right track. Head salutation greeter Eric Elbogen shortened his group's name a while back, presumably after every single person told him how awful it was. Elbogen—the band is, for all intents and purposes, a one-man group—still wades in the same indie baroque-pop waters as Wolf Parade and The Decemberists, though on his latest album "Um, Uh Oh," the multi-instrumentalist steps up both the buoyant pop and dirty blues. With Yellow Ostrich and Blair.
