Yellow Minute are deep into their album, and new material just keeps appearing more and more at live shows. They must have 15 or so songs now to pick from for the release expected later this year. Our Freeloader Friday release “White People Ideas” is not going to be on their album, but simply a treat for your listening pleasure. Yellow Minute has also recently scored the soundtrack for an independent film, Ostrichland. The soundtrack contains all new material, and you can get a copy now on the movie’s kickstarter page here.
Their upcoming album, which started off as simply Sean Brennan (who is also the bassist of Skybox), has now unified in the creative process. P.J. Waxman (former Dear and the Headlights guitarist) gets more involved by singing along with one of his own compositions. “White People Ideas” was developed by P.J. while working with his former band Me Vale Madre, and what was once forgotten is now seeing the light of day with a free download and video. It is very interesting when the creative process diverges in one band, and ideas still remain with individuals, as is the case with P.J.. Thankfully for the fans, this allows songs to rise from the ashes and be heard.
Former Yellow Minute lead guitarist, Tony Squid (also of Attack of the Giant Squid fame) and Mike Bell (drummer for Lymbyc Systym), who are the two original members of Me Vale Madre, are also currently working with Yellow Minute’s current bassist David Moroney (also the frontman of Mitch Freedom’s Phantasmagoria and bass guitarist for What Laura Says) and What Laura Says and Yellow Minute drummer, Greg Muller, in Wally Boudway’s Wooden Indian. With such a talented collective of musicians, music is sure to inspire new music, and much greater things are in store for all in the future.
