Typhoon - Young Fathers


[I] caught this track on NPR’s All Songs this morning, and after hearing this, and the last tune, “Dreams of Cannabalism,” I’m getting very excited to hear this record. White Lighter, which will release next month on August 20th is the follow up to the band’s EP “A New Kind Of House” that caught the attention of countless music critics and listeners for it’s inspiring hybrid of literate lyrics and wide ranging pop music. We’ve caught this band at Newport Folk Fest back in 2011 and the band’s sound is getting ever huger as time goes on.

Look for their megatour supporting their new record this fall, with a date here in town in late September.
