Have you ever wondered what life’s like for your favorite band on tour? What do they eat before/after a gig? Where did they eat when they stopped in your town? What are they listening to in the van as they jump from gig to gig? Well, we’ve got your covered. Courtesy of Roll Call Records, our […]

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

September 3rd, 2013 Turntable Kitchen Typhoon vinyl single cover Dreams of Cannibalism

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. […]

Musical Pairings: Typhoon – White Lighter

August 29th, 2013 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 […]

Single Serving: Typhoon – Young Fathers

July 1st, 2013 Typhoon White Lighter

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 […]

Single Serving: Typhoon – Common Sentiments

October 10th, 2012

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 […]

Musical Pairings: Typhoon – A New Kind Of House

May 1st, 2011

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 […]

Single Serving: Typhoon – A New Kind Of House

January 25th, 2011

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 […]

Local Pairing: Typhoon – Hunger and Thirst (paired w/ eating/sf's Oregon Roadtrip Guide)

July 11th, 2010

Have you ever visited a city and fallen in love with it almost as soon as you stepped foot in it?  I felt that way about San Francisco the first time I visited it as an adult, and now I’ve felt that way about Portland, Oregon.  Seriously, Portland is a pretty amazing city: lots of […]

March 10th, 2014 Downloads48

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 […]
