Typhoon Offer Up New Material

2017-10-27 by Site HevyDevy Specialist | 6 Comments
Oregon indie group, Typhoon, have announced their upcoming third studio album Offerings, set to be released January 12, 2018. The record is meant to be a three movement piece whose themes will encompass memory and sacrifice. Typhoon are an up and coming group in the indie scene with each release garnering more attention and acclaim than the last. Lead singer Kyle Morton has also released a solo album in addition to his work with Typhoon.




From the band:

"My Friends,
It brings me great pleasure to announce our new record.

It’s called Offerings and it is a seventy-minute exploration of memory and sacrifice in three movements, the first of which is available now for your immediate listening pleasure.

Without giving too much away, I wanted to share with you an email I wrote to our manager back in May. I had just sent him the final masters and he was asking the sensible question: What is it all about?

It’s a record from the perspective of a mind losing its memory at precisely the same time the world is willfully forgetting its history. The urgent question becomes: without causality, without structures of meaning, without essential features of rational thought, is there anything that can save us from violence / oblivion?

With no past and no future, there is only suffocating, annihilating present, looping on and on ad infinitum (to me, one plausible definition of hell) and the best you can hope for is that somewhere in the void there exists some small, irreducible certainty—a fragment, a kernel, something—that you may have the good fortune to stumble upon before it’s all over.

You know, a boy/girl-meets-girl/boy-everyone-dies-in-botched-attempt- at-neo-pagan-sacrificial-ritual-on-global-scale kind of thing.

Offerings is out in its entirety 1.12.18 on Roll Call Records.

In the meantime, the first movement—Floodplains—is available now with visual accompaniment by the talented Nevan Doyle."

I've listened to the first movement so many times already and it's so good. I can't wait for the rest

Yea this is awesome. White Lighter is one of my favorite albums ever and hopefully this will be just as good.

I've got H&T at a 4.5, WL at a 5, and if this is as good as the first movement all the way through they'll be getting another 5 from me!

Love the new direction, and listened to that movement 4 or 5 times the night it came out. So good.

Rest of the songs as good as this, easy AOTY
