  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. Turntable Kitchen’s Guide to SXSW

    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…

  8. Three Covers of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

    Served Three Ways is a feature where we offer up three different covers of a well known track as performed by three different artists. We’ve previously featured three versions of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”, INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart” (including a great take on the track by Beck & St. Vincent), and Elliott Smith’s “Between Continue…

  9. Turntable Kitchen’s Top LPs of 2013 (10 – 1)

    For me, 2013 was a great year for new music. Indeed, narrowing my list down to only 20 LPs proved to be pretty challenging. Nonetheless, this list reflects what, for me, where the best albums of 2013. I’d love to hear which albums I missed and which albums made your list. 10. Rhye – Woman Continue…

  10. Uncanny: A New Music Digital Mixtape

    Once again, it’s been more than a hot minute since we last shared a downloadable mixtape around here. Nonetheless, I’d like to think it’s worth the wait. After all, we’ve compiled a great collection of strange and unique pop jams for this one. Our subscribers will undoubtedly recognize some of these songs from our recent Pairings Continue…
