Typsy Panthre is the recording duo Allison LaBonne and John Crozier. Their sound is fun and dark; like a 2nd cousin of the Smiths and Nick Drake with electronic drums and gentle female vocals. LaBonne (who sings and writes songs with The Starfolk and The Owls) was already a fan of John’s songwriting in the likes of Ninotchka, Ninian Hawick, and Muskellunge; and of his guitar work in a host of Minneapolis bands from the garage punk Wahinis, to the bossa-pop Legendary Jim Ruiz Group, to the lush, sixties-inspired Hang Ups. Typsy Panthre released two songs in 2009 on a vinyl split EP (with The Starfolk) which received widespread college airplay. Typsy Panthre’s debut full-length is out October 23, 2012 on Korda Records.
