It came from Wasilla
A meaningful thanks to Sarah for actually making me care about what town these guys are from. Not a new band, apparently, but they are to me, and, I reckon, to the big scene. Portugal. The Man (yes, “Portugal. The Man”) is a bluesy, folksy, rock group that ventures between choir vocals, electric guitar lead solos, and sounds-like-Jim-James unapologetic wails.
Hurry up and listen to the forthcoming album here on MySpace, at least until the the record comes out officially on Tuesday. Two song previews here; the rest you will need to buy.
Thanks, yet again, to Paul Lester of the Guardian for helping me add another dandy to my collection.
