Typhoon – Dreams of Cannibalism

One of the best things that came of Mumford and Sons, despite how one-dimensional they can be at times, is how they paved the way commercially for large multi-instrumental bands to receive the reception they deserve. One of these deserving groups is the Portland based band Typhoon (seems like all good music comes from Portland).  With a bounty of instruments ranging from violin, trumpet, horn, drums, bass and guitar, they create music reminiscent of Beirut, but a little more orchestral and folky. Dreams of Cannibalism is a perfect incarnation of their genre. I can almost feel myself walking around barefoot on the slow roasted grass at a festival.
