Unsure exactly when all this came out, but I know I was checking for awhile per their Facebook page and didn't see anything, but then today the video for Dreams of Cannibalism was shared. At any case, definitely a record to look forward to; but I am still un exposed to the videos below save for the one back from December.

But maybe this record could be a bit of a sleeper?..I hope so. August 20th should be a big day for their fans.

White Lighter - An Album by Typhoon from Matthew Ross on Vimeo.

So this is a promotional video for this upcoming album from the Portland, Oregon band Typhoon. A band by the way, it appears has 11 members and an additional 4-5 who also help out. I guess Margot and the Nuclear So and So's, back in the day, was not far from that large a band as well. But wow, that's a lot of musicians making the same music.

Anyway, that promo, doesn't really have any music, but some kid talking to his mom about the Sun and his dad. Maybe the subject matter of the album will involve the Sun? But, regardless, I got into them back in 2011 via their EP/Mini album A New Kind of House. I really enjoy a lot of that record and it's sort of subtle, chamber college prog of a kind. And to mention Margot again, I do see this band as maybe filling the void without Margot sounding or really being the same band, at least stylistically, they used to be.

When does this album come out? That hopefully will come out soon, and I'll be passing along in here of course.
