  1. TK024: Typhoon – Dreams of Cannibalism b/w Rules of the Game

    We’ve made it no secret that we believe Typhoon‘s latest album White Lighter is one of the year’s best releases (buy it from the band’s website). After all, the 11-member Portland-based band is one of the few groups capable of crafting beautifully orchestral folk epics that can successfully balance soaring, soul-pumping arrangements against poignant, occasionally heart-breaking, songwriting.

  2. Musical Pairings: Typhoon – White Lighter

    Kasey and I first discovered Typhoon during a road trip to Portland three years ago. In part, I picked up their album Hunger and Thirst as a souvenir from the trip, without having listened to it first, based solely on a recommendation from the clerk at Tender Loving Empire. To be honest, we didn’t have any expectations, we just Continue…

  3. Single Serving: Typhoon – Young Fathers

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Turntable Kitchen loves Oregon-based Typhoon. Seriously, we own all of their albums and we see them live every chance we get. So, as you might imagine, we’ve really enjoyed seeing how their latest album, White Lighter, is shaping up as they slowly tease out singles in Continue…

  4. Single Serving: Typhoon – Common Sentiments

    Typhoon are the best little big band in America right now. Hands down. While their following steadily grows with each new listener, in my mind there is no reason this band shouldn’t be selling out the Greek Theater. In time, I’m sure they will. A band with this much skill and creativity can’t remain a Continue…

  5. Musical Pairings: Typhoon – A New Kind Of House

    I found myself trying to formulate the words for today’s post, but strangely unable to so much as write the first word.  Just as I was going to sit down to write the post, I learned via Twitter that the President had announced an unusual surprise speech about national security to be delivered shortly. That’s Continue…

  6. Single Serving: Typhoon – A New Kind Of House

    Typhoon‘s Hunger & Thirst easily landed a spot within my top 5 album’s of 2010. And you wanna know why?  Because it is a beautiful album with thoughtful lyrics, swooningly-lush orchestral instrumentation, subtly effective hooks and clever melodies. Surprisingly, these folks don’t seem to have found the massive fan-base they so obviously deserve and seem Continue…

  7. Three Covers of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You”

    We’re tapping into a brand new Served Three Ways for you today. As always that means we’re dishing out three covers by three different artists of the same song. In the past we’ve featured covers of songs by Grimes, The Knife, and Drake. Today we have three different interpretations of Frank Ocean‘s gorgeous single “Thinking About You.” Below, Continue…

  8. Outside Lands 2014 Photo Diary & Wrap-Up

    Although San Francisco’s biggest music festival, Outside Lands, concluded last night, we’re still dreaming about some of our favorite performances, foods, and drinks. As always, Outside Lands was both decadent and eclectic. From bacon flights (a sampler of five different bacons) to perfect pizzas cooked in wood burning ovens (for only 60 seconds), we ate Continue…

    Whether you have a wristband, badge, or just plan to show up in Austin and hope for the best, you’ll have a better experience at SXSW Music if you have a game plan. That doesn’t mean trying to schedule out exactly where you’ll be and when. That would be a mistake. After all, if you Continue…
