Each source you find will claim Portland band Typhoon has a different number of members, ranging from 9 to 17, in addition to often bringing extra friends on stage for their live shows.

Despite this disagreement over the number of band members, there are a few things that seem agreed upon. First, the band's members craft precise, delicate and complicated arrangements and melodies. Second, the band's sound is joyfully loud, with trumpets and strings making appearances in most songs. And finally, regardless of exactly how many members Typhoon consists of, the big group sounds pretty darn incredible together.

Founded and led by Kyle Morton, Typhoon's lyrics often take root in Morton's childhood struggle with Lyme disease and the threat of mortality and overall darkness he faced in his youth. Still, Typhoon surrounds the often-gloomy words with beauty and grace, like a celebration of his triumph that only a big group of friends could provide.

As you listen to this Live at KDHX session, consider the delicate arrangement of violins, percussion and other instruments. Also, pay attention to Morton's harrowing, yet glorious lyrics. When you put all the elements together you might realize how majestic and powerful a group friends making music together can be.
