Crystal Ballroom
1332 W Burnside St.
 
[ORCHESTRAL POP] Trying to write about a band as layered and versatile as Typhoon means confronting a series of contradictions. How can double drums be so heavy-hitting one moment then gentle and restrained the next? How are horn arrangements so pulsing and booming so easily sent swirling off into the background? Most importantly, how do all of those things actually work in a single song? Typhoon’s most recent full-length album, White Lighter, skillfully answers each of those questions just as soon as they’re asked. It’s a study in how intricate layers of strings, horns, guitar, bass, piano and probably at least a dozen other things, when carefully arranged, can make for a very fun indie-pop album.
