What? WHAT? WHAT? Typhoon covered Frank Ocean’s Thinking About You! Folksy, mega talented, MANY membered Portland indie rock band Typhoon! Covered Frank Ocean! And it’s pretty effing good! In fact, I love it! Who knew that Kyle Morton’s voice would fit Ocean’s crooner so well? Wait, why am I even surprised? This band is absolutely incredible. They’re geniuses when it comes to lush, cathartic build ups and an endless array of vocals and instruments. God, I’m really remembering why I love these guys right now. They don’t change the general feel of the song at all, but they take it on in a very fresh, new way. I really must see these guys live again soon. Hopefully, on their next tour. Which I happened to support via Kickstarter, by the way. Catch them live if you get the chance, you will NOT be disappointed. I’m still amazed at how they were able to all fit on stage at the tiny Bottom of the Hill the last time I caught them. Typhoon has a new album titled White Lighter coming out August 20 on Roll Call Records.
