check out this house party like video of Typhoon

this one gave me the chills. my request is being emailed as you read this -

the song is "Feels Like Home" from Portland's Typhoon. It was shot as part of a series by IntotheWoods.TV.

if you are reading me like Cribb's notes, here's the summary: band has a jazillion members playing in what appears to be a house with lots of people standing around. Everybody digs it, and the combination of typical 2010 musical instruments is accompanied by 2 violinists and 2 trumpeteers. The choral parts remind me of the cathartic jams that stem from 31 Knots during their best songs (btw, another great Portland band).

if you're outside of the Pac Northwest, get plane tix soon
