Typhoon's fourth album, "Offerings," tells the story of a man whose memory is slowly disappearing. Frontman Kyle Morton, who visited our CPR Performance Studio for a solo set four years ago, drew on his experience in the age of information for the record's 14 songs. The Portland, Ore., octet adds a vast sound of rock instruments, strings and field recordings to accompany the often bleak lyrics.

Morton and his bandmates played three songs from "Offerings" in our studio along with an older cut. They also spoke with Alisha Sweeney about how the album's story came together, the effect of modern technology on memory and the origin of some of the unusual sounds on "Offerings."
