It has been a few years since Typhoon has come out with new music. Front man Kyle Morton released a record last year, but the sound was not as rich as Typhoon (despite the very deep dark lyrics that he…and they…are known for). The wait is finally over. Last week the Portland based band released the first movement of their forthcoming record Offerings. I have repeatedly listened to these songs, and watched the accompanying lyric presentation. I love the mood set by these four tracks, and I cannot listen to them enough. I am eagerly awaiting the new record after the first of the year.
I was listening to more Typhoon this weekend, and ran into this live performance from La Blogothèque. This live set features songs from White Lighter. I love the description on the video (see below). While I’ve not seen Typhoon in person, I do believe their music is so incredibly beautiful and personal. It is so full of raw emotion and incredible musicality.
