‘White Lighter'

Typhoon (Roll Call)

★★★★

I keep waiting for everyone to catch on to just how awesome 12-member indie rock collective Typhoon are and, with any luck, their latest album “White Lighter” will do the trick. Having loved their 2010 debut “Hunger and Thirst” and even-better 2011 followup EP “A New Kind of House,” my hopes were high for this 13-track effort. Typhoon have met and exceeded them by crafting a terrific record that cements their status as one of the indie world's under-the-radar jewels.

Following a brief “Prelude,” the band settles into the juiciest parts of the album, featuring a series of standouts in “Artificial Light,” lead single “Young Fathers,” “Possible Deaths,” “Dreams of Cannibalism,” “Prosthetic Love” and “Common Sentiments.” If you have yet to discover this talented band, you owe it to yourself to seek out “White Lighter.” I promise you won't be disappointed.
