Those familiar with Barsuk won’t be surprised by its roster’s inclusion of Yellow Ostrich, and indie outfit built around the voice of Wisconsinite Alex Schaaf. The music on their debut, The Mistress, comes in the form spare, percussive and pleading indie rock. Check out the new clip for album closer “Mary (Alternate)” after the jump, an austere, sun-drenched clip of a lone dancer. Ryan Kuhlman directs.

Here’s the MP3:

The Mistress is out now on Barsuk.

  1. I like the video, but I still don’t understand why they’ve chosen to use this “alternate” version of the song. I much, much prefer the original version–it has Alex’s layered vocals in the beginning that create this really lush sound. This version feels so flat in comparison.
