Portugal. The Man
First off, apologizes for not keeping up with the posts. Not to make excuses (here come the excuses) but with the semester winding down I've been swamped with work/searching for jobs/partying every night of the week and it hasn't left me much time for blogging. However, I will continue to A) vow to give this blog 100% and B) show you great new music, of which you may or may not be familiar with. This next band that I would like to give some shine to is "Portugal. The Man", an indie rock band from Oregon via Alaska.
I recently got my hands on their 4th disc, "The Satanic Satanist" and have not been able to quite them ever since. The band started in late 2004, and have since released 6 studio albums, along with getting a breakthrough gig preforming at Bonnaroo in 2009. The songs posted below are from the above album (oxymoron? eh, well worth a try) and if you like what you hear, well there is plenty more where that came from. The "Satanic Satanist" was simultaneously released acoustically, which they titled "The Majestic Majesty." Also, earlier this month on March 2nd they released "American Ghetto", another full length album.
"Because we are all, we are all just lovers
Born of earth and light like all these others"
