On Across The Whipplewash (Original Soundtrack) Yellowbird are tipping their hats to the tunes of Spaghetti Westerns. But beneath each track, emerges the group’s signature. At the 48 second mark on “He Blinks He Shoots” a distorted voice comes to life with psychedelic undertones. On the self-titled track, the organ keys march with dark undertones that draw comparisons to the hip hop style of Blakroc. For an album lacking vocals, Yellowbird, confidently paint a landscape without ever seeming hokey.
Across The Whipplewash is the film score debut of Sam Cohen and Yellowbirds. The album was recorded in early 2013 for the eponymously titled film by Josh and Caitlin Drake. You can watch the film below.
