There’s strength in numbers, and that’s certainly true in the case of Portland mini-orchestra Typhoon, who swept through the KEXP studios last fall in support of their most recent album White Lighter. Ironically recorded in Happy Valley, Oregon, the new album is a chronological musical diary of frontman Kyle Morton’s struggle with lyme disease, and his near-death experience during childhood. Buoyed by a near-dozen friends, and the whirlpool of glockenspiel, violin, horns, and more, Typhoon’s performance celebrates this “messy thing called life,” and the friends and family who help pull us through it.
