Portugal. The Man: “In The Montain In The Cloud”

with one comment

The peak of literate and addictive pshychedelic pop comes from Wasilla, Alaska.

review portugal the man In The Mountain In The CloudIt’s a funny thing to call your band Portugal. The Man, and to come from Alaska. Or maybe I’m the only one seeing the fun in that. It doesn’t translate into any sort of hispanic vibe anyway, at least not in this “In The Mountain In The Cloud”: everything here is as international as it can be. Take lead singer John Baldwin Gourley’s voice. It’s a perfect blend of Bon Iver (‘Share With Me The Sun’), Marc Bolan (‘Floating [Time Isn’t Working My Side]’) and David Bovie’s (‘Senseless’), and it serves a musical blend taking from even more influences. The result is a refreshing and endearing psyche pop frenzy with soul, electro and glam rock accents.
