Portugal. The Man

Where do I start....... Portugal. The Man from Alaska have been around for a number of years, released 7 albums between 2006 and 2013, sometimes only taking 8 or 9 months between two albums. Their latest record ''Woodstock'' which was released this month took a little longer, 4 years to be exact.

 

Singer has a ''girly'' voice and the band's output is a very eclectic mix of styles ranging from pop, rock, psychedelic elements, electro and lately also incorporating a bit of rap / hip hop as well. It's hard choosing a couple songs to post cause their style varies so much from one album to the next but I'll try. I liked them a little better before they signed with Atlantic in 2011 but that's just my own personal preference.

 

They're also a good live band, seen them 5 times and will again this September. Here are some videos you can check out:

Funny but I like it. It's eclectic and I've been exposed to some music like this when I listen to CKUA here in Alberta. Please check out the CKUA website and look for their play list, especially for their morning show. It's so diverse. You will hear music like this and then Miles Davis. And they still play the latest by Bruce Springteen, The Waterboys, Violet Femmes and then they will follow it up with some Black Prairies or Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. So yeah, I can appreciate this music.
