Portugal. The Man are definitely one of my favorite bands of the last decade.  When you listen to lead singer John Gourley’s voice, you’ll hear that he’s influenced everyone from MGMT to Foster the People.  Musically, Portugal. The Man’s music is psychedelic pop and I recommend ALL of their albums.  They’ve been around since 2004 and have nearly released an album a year since then and I guarantee you if you check out their music, you are going to have the same reaction I had, which is falling head over heels in love with them!  If you are looking for a place to start, let me recommend 2011’s “In The Mountain In The Cloud,” as I truly think the record is a masterpiece from start to finish.  The band has a pretty big fan base and has been performing at large venues such as Terminal 5 in New York for several years, but their latest album “Evil Friends,” which was released at the beginning of June, was produced by Danger Mouse and Portugal. The Man are starting to receive mainstream attention.  Well deserved!  The guys from the band are extremely nice, which makes me like them even more.  Thanks PTM so much for the great music and for being really cool to chat with.  May the greatest success in the world be yours!  (and may we get lots of b-sides and unreleased tracks!)  🙂
