Typhoon's "The Honest Truth"

Typhoon's video for their current single "The Honest Truth" has been one of my favorite finds of the summer. I'd like to think this Portland 12-piece (yeah dude 12) actually lives in this house and sits together gaming, reading and doing homework. That's how they sound to me . . . like an extended family with brothers and sisters and cousins that have been playing together for so long that they know where each guitar, horn, voice and key fits in.

Their latest, the 6-song A New Kind of House, is available on limited edition maroon vinyl through Tender Loving Empire. Swap your email address for a free download of "The Honest Truth" here. Catch them on the road with the Decemberists this month.
