It’s hard to believe that my excitement for Typhoon’s next album Offerings could grow even more after the Oregon collective revealed Rorschach earlier this month, but that’s exactly what’s happened now that Kyle Morton and the rest of his merry band of gifted multi-instrumentalist and musicians have done by revealing Darker. The lush meditative, stringy dynamic indie rock song is the second official single from Offerings, and it’s just as much of a magnificent masterpiece.  Kyle Morton says of the track: “‘Darker’ is a song from the third movement of our new record, Offerings, detailing the final stages of our character’s memory crisis, in which he loses those distinctions separating self from other. Naturally, chaos ensues.” Visit the band’s store, here, to pre-order Offerings in CD, MP3, or vinyl format ahead of its arrival on January 12th. Catch the band on tour in 2018, you won’t regret it. Seriously. Typhoon is a life changing band to see live, and I’m lucky to have experienced them at Bottom of the Hill many years ago, where it befuddled me how all their members fit on the little stage. They filled the venue with their resounding, emotive sound in a way that I’ll never, ever forget. Typhoon returns to SF on February 13th with a show at the Independent, tickets are available, here.

We’ve been fans of Oregon indie rock collective Typhoon for a very long time, and our experience with their live sets have been memorable, to say the least. From Kyle Morton’s fantastic voice, which always seems on the verge of cracking under the sheer pressure of so much emotion, to the humongous band’s sheer force as a lush orchestral union of talented musicians, Typhoon has been nothing short of astonishing. In fact, it always boggled us how they even fit their whole band on stage, and how they could feel every nook and crevice of a venue with such beautifully moving sound. As such, we’re elated that Typhoon is returning with a new full length on January 12th. Now, they’ve shared a music video for their single Rorschach from forthcoming album Offerings. Directed by Matthew Thomas Ross, it’s a frenetic visualization of human contemplation and recollection, soundtracked by Rorschach’s compelling experimental folk rock. Gentle guitar picks to emphatic strums dance about each other on the crunchy chugging, beautifully reflective song. You can pre-order a signed copy of Offerings from Typhoon’s store, here. Or you can pre-order from iTunes, here. Typhoon has also announced their list of upcoming tour dates for 2018 in North America and Europe, with a stop at the Independent in SF on February 13th. I highly suggest you get out and catch this amazing band live. 

OFFICIAL VID: Typhoon – Young Fathers

December 6, 2013

My favorite folksy indie rock band from Oregon dropped a video today for their stomping, extravagant single Young Fathers, off their recent album White Lighters. The video stars Stelth Ulvang of The Lumineers, too! As I’ve mentioned tons of times before, Typhoon sports an incredibly large number of band members. They fill every crevice, nook, and cranny with their lush sound live. It’s unbelievable that they can fit on stages at smaller venues. Go see them. It’ll be a grand night, no doubt.

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.

One of my favorite Oregon folk rock ensembles previewed another track off their upcoming new album. Typhoon is likely one of the largest (member wise) bands I love and also one of the more incredible acts to catch live, especially in a small intimate setting. Their new full length White Lighter drops on August 20 and I’m already reserved my copy. Previously, they already allowed us to listen to Dreams of Cannibalism. Today brings us Young Fathers which might be one of the most cheerful, upbeat songs I’ve heard from them yet. There’s some off kilter almost psychy moments in the beginning, then Kyle Morton’s vocals kick in and yep, this is obviously Typhoon. However, there are female vocals on this one, which is fairly rare for Typhoon. As the song progresses, the lush loudness I always expect of the band explodes into gear and the song just takes off. I like it a lot, but I still love their moody, more melancholic tunes the most. Dreams of Cannibalism is more along those lines. Revisit below.
