Portugal. The Man

There has to be some credit given for this band's name alone -- co-founder John Gourley once explained it as an attempt to create a demi-mythic entity bigger than the individual members. Formed in Wasilla, Alaska, Portugal. The Man (yes, there's a period in the middle of their name) grew out of the ashes of Anatomy of a Ghost, a post-hardcore band whose vocalist and guitarist -- Gourley and Zach Carothers, respectively -- opted to continue working together. Rounding out the new band's lineup was keyboardist/singer Wes Hubbard, himself a veteran of other Alaskan groups, and the trio eventually relocated from Alaska to Portland, Oregon. Their initial existence in the Pacific Northwest was the typical hardscrabble life of a band with few resources, but drummer Jason Sechrist (formerly of Konmai Defense System) joined to form a more stable lineup. The band's profile received a boost from the Internet (the musicians made heavy use of MySpace and PureVolume for promotional purposes), and Portugal. The Man released an initial EP in 2005 before issuing their debut album, Waiter: You Vultures!, in early 2006. The next year, the group (whose lineup had once again reverted to three members, as Hubbard had left and was replaced by touring keyboardist Ryan Neighbors), issued Church Mouth, whose aggressive sound bore traces of Led Zeppelin and Jane's Addiction. The bandmates then opted to finance their third record themselves, drawing upon a wealth of guest musicians -- including trombonists, trumpeters, and violinists -- to create the eclectic Censored Colors. In 2009 the group released The Satanic Satanist, then quickly followed up the next year with the mellower and more electronic American Ghetto. Later that year, the band signed with Atlantic Records. Guitarist Noah Gersh joined the band for their 2011 summer tour. The group recorded their major label debut album, In the Mountain in the Cloud in late 2011; it was produced by John Hill, mixed by Andy Wallace, and released in July of 2012. A month earlier, Sleep Forever, a 13-minute short directed by Michael Ragen, and shot entirely in Gourley's hometown, premiered on the Independent Film Channel. This was the last recording for members Sechrist and Neighbors, who were replaced by drummer Kane Richotte and keyboardist Kyle O'Quin. Portugal. The Man enlisted Danger Mouse (Brian Burton) as producer for 2013's Evil Friends; the album was released in June of 2013. ~ Ned Raggett, Rovi

Saw them in Denver with my son. Was the only 61 year old in the crowd and really enjoyed them.
I can listen to them all day... I've been a fan since the beginning and the way they have been able to capture great music time and time again, really speaks volumes of their talent. John is f**king magical.
Its so f**king ridiculous how original and creative John is. I mean not only in the music in the art and the videos.
This band seriously can't be beat. Very original, catchy and his voice....it' s amazing. Absolutly obsessed with Portugal the man.
Portugal the god !
They define originality
Huge Fan That Got This Band On My Top 5 Easily!! *fangirling but its ok for this band*
The lyrics posted on Share with me the sun are copied and pasted from the wrong song from the second stanza down. But this band is the tits
I just love how their style changes so much with every album. Portugal. The Man is just plain wonderful.
Similar artist for this band is bullshite. This band is nothing like Dr.Dog, Broken Bells OR Starfucker! Couldn't be less accurate haha. I could see Black Keys and Cold War Kids. I'm surprised the Raconteurs aren't there honestly. But of the few songs i heard, they sound pretty cool
my friend first introduced purple yellow red and blue to me. they're great! I instantly loved them!!
Wow. Very short comment thread. Friend of mine put me on to these guys. Pretty original, mellow feel

They are great live!
