Music Format
  • Typhoon’s sophomore full-length White Lighter stands out as especially cohesive and stunning when compared to its predecessors. Upon its completion and 2013 release on Roll Call Records, Morton, who has battled with serious illness for years, said, “when we started working on White Lighter, I had reason to believe that it would be the last thing I ever did. I’m still here and there’s still work to be done.”

  • Typhoon Typhoon Typhoon is a band of contradictions. The eleven-piece Portland supergroup is both wild and tightly structured, punk and symphonic. Frontman Kyle Morton’s lyrics are concerned primarily with death, but Typhoon’s songs are resoundingly triumphant. The truth is that the band, formed by high school friends who somewhat miraculously overcame the interpersonal challenges and logistical nightmares of keeping a project of this scale intact to full maturity, was just built that way. Morton has fought significant battles with illness over the course of his life and has at times left him struggling with meaning. Of Typhoon’s music he says, “You can consider it one very bewildered man’s attempt to explain the universe to himself...in the language of bewilderment.”
