I love this band!

Church Mouth is such a fantastic record. I love Waiter: "You Vultures!" though it is more experimental.

July 30, 2008 - As the music industry continues to adapt to allow artists to be more involved in their careers - an act that was perhaps accelerated by Radiohead's most recent release - and the band's desire to cater more to their fans, Portugal. The Man and their label and publishing company, Approaching AIRBalloons, and Equal Vision Records have inked a unique agreement, it has been announced. The first release under this exceptional deal will be P.TM's third full-length CD, Censored Colors, set for a September 16, 2008 release.


One of the factors that makes this partnership so unique is that the members of Portugal. The Man will share in the risk as well as in the rewards with Equal Vision, something that is easier for a Platinum act (like Radiohead) than a developing artist.Having self-financed the "Censored Colors" album, and while they had other label options, P.TM welcomed the idea of having an "open canvas" with Equal Vision, where they could work at their own pace and be intimately involved in all factors of their recording career.


Under the mainstream radar, Portugal. The Man has garnered an incredible buzz with the release of two earlier full-length CDs, 2006's Walter: "You Vultures!" and 2007's Church Mouth (the latter of which debuted on the Billboard Top Alternative New Artists chart at luck #13), and three EPs, The Pines, the Devil (2006), Devil Say I, I Say Air (digital EP, 2006), and It's Complicated Being a Wizard (2007). They have amassed kudos from an array of media outlets like Filter ("Portugal The Man hasn't merely evolved from the avant-garde, neo-soul that shaped their earliest works, they've transcended it") and Alternative Press ("...it's the songs that truly set this band apart").


Portugal. The Man’s unique sound has its roots firmly in front man/songwriter John Baldwin Gourley’s abstract vision and unique upbringing. Gourley was raised in a remote log cabin on the outskirts of Wasilla, Alaska that was powered by a generator and had no phone. His mom and dad doubled as a team of dog sled musher's. Add in an extended period of homelessness, a love of science fiction and a desire to make music that does not sound like every other band, and the genesis of Portugal. The Man was formed. Gourley and childhood friend Zachary Scott Carothers formed P.TM in 2003 with Portland, OR’s Jason Sechrist joining in 2005. To this day, PTM employs a rotating cast of guest musicians outside of the core four. Gourley is also an accomplished visual artist having created the stunning artwork for the “Censored Colors” package as well as P.TM’s previous releases, tour posters, t-shirts and other items.)

best band from alaska that i'm aware of.


just saw them a few hours ago with rx bandits and i went into it fairly blind. they put on a great show and just have a great black keys/mars volta feel to them. gritty.

I had a 20 minute conversation with their bassist last night. He's a cool guy. Great hugs.
And I didn't like RX Bandits so much. The lead singer's super charismatic, but his voice lacks originality.

I saw the Rx Bandits play once before I really knew anything about them, their show looks pretty cool. From what I've heard from a friend that likes them, their songs are basically 50% boring repetitive ska-ish stuff and 50% really cool experimentation. I keep meaning to look into which album has the higher percentage of the latter half so I can check it out.

Seriously? RX Bandits are amazing. Check out The Resignation and 'And The Battle Begun'. I love me sum Matt Embree.

edit: 'And I' is good stuff. Portugal never lets me down.

i've skimmed through the other albums, but and the battle begun is amazing. it has a hint of ska elements with a lot of experimentation. i love how the album opens up with an a cappella melody that they sample later in a song. i recommend only for the night, a mouth full of hollow threats, epoxi-lips, apparition, and crushing destroyer.

Portugal. The Man are heavenly. Looking forward to the new record. I haven't heard "Devil Say I, I Say Devil" or "The Pines," should I?
