At Pickathon, the many-tentacled Typhoon played some of the new material they recorded earlier this year at Pendarvis Farm. It's as good as what's come before, which is to say it's very fucking good indeed. The sheer logistics of this band, whose ranks swell into the double digits, have me completely mystified (particularly when it seems most three-piece bands can barely keep a consistent lineup for more than a few months). But what's more mystifying, and delightful, is how Typhoon continually, consistently makes heart-stoppingly great music that ranges from quiet folk to near-orchestral bombast. This local Portland band is also an excellent, world-class act. We're damn fortunate. NED LANNAMANN
