Dig into this week’s Saturday Alternative playlist! The Fitting Room album was Offerings by Typhoon, out January 12th on Roll Call Records.

Typhoon are getting ready to release their fourth and most ambitious record, Offerings. Sonically and thematically, this album creates a world around it, and explores a concept both heart-wrenching and beautiful, as we follow a man coming to grips with the fact that he’s losing his memory, and there is nothing he can do about it. Though this concept is naturally dark and somber, the 11-piece Portland band take us on an emotional journey, and there is plenty of hope and light along the way.
