Each time I finish listening through the twisting rhythms, mood swings and massive dynamic shifts that make up ‘Young Fathers’ by Typhoon I come to the same conclusion: everyone in Typhoon is an insane genius (to borrow a phrase from my friend Agatha). There is too much going on, too many opposite ideas and opposite sounds coming at you from all over, for this to make sense…and yet it’s a brilliant, coherent, stunning piece of work through and through. Seriously, insane geniuses, all of ’em.
Typhoon will release White Lighter on August 20th- it is the album I’m most looking forward to in the second half of the year. Oh, and they are going to on tour to support it in September and October. Be there. Seriously. enjoy.
