New Typhoon Song! New Typhoon Album in August!
After many anxious sleepless months, we finally have some details about the new Typhoon
album, which is titled White Lighter
and will be released on August 20 on LA's Roll Call Records, also home to Rubblebucket, Army Navy, and On An On. A preview track appeared over at the Wall Street Journal
, of all places, this morning. It's of course another stunner from the 11-piece local band, a swirling, rumbling mini-epic filled with all the drama and dynamics the band is so skilled at, making the most of the band's massed vocals and even expanding their instrumentation to include piano and pedal steel.
Typhoon singer Kyle Morton has a little bit to say about the new song, "Dreams of Cannibalism," over on WSJ, and the album, which was recorded at Pendarvis Farm (site of Pickathon) and other locations with longtime Typhoon collaborator Paul Laxer has a full track listing posted on Typhoon's site. (Interestingly, one of the 13 tracks is named "Hunger and Thirst," which was the title of Typhoon's 2010 full-length—shades of "Houses of the Holy.")
August 20 cannot get here soon enough, but in the meantime, take a listen to "Dreams of Cannibalism" above, and download it on Soundcloud.
