Album of the Week - Thursday 10/16/14 at 6:00PM - " "It's all Crazy! It's all False! It's all a Dream! It's Alright!" by mewithoutYou

KDRT, Justin CoxOver the course of three albums and several hundred mesmerizing shows, audiences have consistently heard something dramatic and altogether different from mewithoutYou. Spirits have been jolted and calmed, in equal measures.

"it's all crazy! it's all false! it's all a dream! it's alright" is another daring adventure charted by frontman Aaron Weiss, guitarist Michael Weiss, bassist Greg Jehanian, and drummer Rickie Mazzotta. Helping to further stretch the group’s boundaries is the production duo of indie dynamo Daniel Smith (Danielson Familie) and Philly workhorse Brian McTear (Mazarin, Matt Pond PA).

Album of the Week - Thursday 10/20/14 at 6:00PM - "White Lighter" by Typhoon

We are in for a treat. With 14 members, Portland, Oregon's Typhoon has more than enough firepower to propel its seismic indie rock confections past the nosebleed seats and into the parking lot, but despite its voluminous arsenal, the band shows great restraint on White Lighter, the follow-up to their well-received 2011 EP A New Kind of House. Operating somewhere between the nervy tenderness of Frightened Rabbit, the exotic, orchestral spell casting of Beirut, and the earnest and all-inclusive, aural high fiving of Arcade Fire, Typhoon, led by garrulous frontman Kyle Morton, is an idiosyncratic, anthem-producing machine.
