Kyle Morton, the lead singer of Portland's indie-orchestra Typhoon, releases his debut solo album What Will Destroy You. The ten song set was recorded by Morton and longtime Typhoon producer/collaborator Paul Laxer. Morton explains, "Most of these songs were written in about a day, many of them while walking aimlessly around Portland, others wrote themselves in the moments just before sleep. They were recorded and mixed with the invaluable help of Paul Laxer from the inviolate comfort of his living room, mostly in the evenings during the winter and early spring of 2015. At the outset there was no deliberate attempt at an overarching concept, though once finished and lined up together the theme of my subconscious was revealed to me; this was a record about love, more specifically (not devolving into platitudes just yet), the ambivalence of erotic love. With a couple of exceptions these songs are about kinds of love, from old fashioned heartache to acute sadomasochism; some drawn from personal experience and others extrapolated from years of keen observation on the subject."
