Thank you, thank you THANK YOU FINALLY–New music from Typhoon. Here are some fun facts about me and Typhoon:
-Typhoon were the first and last band I ever saw at Berbati’s Pan (and were one of the last bands to play there!).
-I have seen Typhoon too many times, many times were in the same night, but the best show of theirs I saw was in Boise, Idaho at TreeFort Festival.
-The first time I saw Typhoon, they opened for Avi Buffalo, and they were infinitely better.
This song, “Morton’s Fork,” is what one would expect from them: simple, orchestral, intoxicating. It’s sweet, in the sort of way that has you wanting to sit on your porch in the late sun drinking lemonade or something.
(Maybe that is just me projecting my desires onto this song.)
Christian played this for me a bunch in the car last week. I really like this, still need to listen to this full album. I’m on vacation, y’all, so don’t expect much from me until I return to Portland in a week. 🙂
This week has been crazy–between packing up my apartment, moving in to my new house, and spending time with my crazy family, I have had hardly anytime to sleep let alone blog.
Next week I’m headed to my homeland, Maryland, to relax, be a tourist with my West Coast boyfriend, and see people I haven’t seen since January.
So here’s the newest video from Baltimore’s own Lower Dens. Home state pride!
THE HONEST TRUTH is that I’m really bad at maintaining my internet presence over the weekend. That, coupled with me leaving the state in a few days and planning super fun activities to do with my Mom and Aunt while they are here, has been keeping me from being the good little blogger y’all know me to be.
And that is the honest truth about blogging, and Zibby.
But this is The Honest Truth by Typhoon and it is much more interesting. Cheers!
I have a big post coming later today chronicling my weekend, which was insane, but for now you should just listen to Jaill.
I feel like this song right now thinking about my empty stomach, my headache, and the fact that I got four hours of sleep last night.
Here’s the latest video from Blitzen Trapper for “Girl in a Coat,” which is one of my favorite’s off of American Goldwing! The video stars Brian Koch, drummer, and was directed by Daniel Elkayam, who’s directed several Blitzen Trapper videos. The boys are wrapping up a tour before coming home to Oregon to play Pickathon
Even though evil in the purest form produced this video (cue eyeroll–Urban Outfitters), Sean Pecknold directed it and we like him. We also like songs that make us forget it is so humid and gross outside.
