PORTUGAL THE MAN – ” Rich Friends “

There should be a reasonable explanation for the sharp musical turn found on Portugal The Man’s eighth studio album, “Woodstock”. After the release of the Danger Mouse-produced Evil Friends in 2013, the Portland-based outfit retreated again to the studio with Beastie Boys’ Mike D for three years to worry over the purported follow up Gloomin + Doomin. This record, though, was ultimately scratched very near its completion, and a fateful reassessment of the band’s musical message lead to the revolutionary-minded street-pop of Woodstock after vocalist/guitarist John Gourley came upon his dad’s ticket stub from the original 1969 Woodstock Festival.

The arrival of new album “Woodstock” (via Atlantic Records ) the longest wait between albums of their career. But it seems to have paid off, as current single “Feel It Still” has done extremely well, landing a top spot placement on the Billboard charts.
