Along with calling “The Honest Truth” one of “The Best Songs of 2011,” Paste Magazine raves “Music critics throw around adjectives like ‘orchestral’ and ‘expansive’ all the time these days. But here’s a band that actually deserves such labels. Portland’s Typhoon is an indie rock geek’s dream: a dynamic 12-piece with a seemingly unending reservoir of energy, emotive vocals, arpeggiated guitars, horns, multiple drum kits and strings … Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new critical darlings.”

NPR‘s Bob Boilen called A New Kind Of House “absolutely stunning” and “so beautiful, it make’s me want to follow every single thing Typhoon does.” Greg Kot of The Chicago Tribune called Typhoon the “coolest little orchestra” and “the group’s mix of strings, brass and multi-part vocal harmonies was stirring, as arrangements swung from hushed hymn-like passages to exultant crescendos.” Absolute Punk simply says A New Kind Of House “the sort of album that makes me feel excited about music all over again.”
