Throwback Thursday - Portugal. The Man
June 12, 2014

A year ago this week we added the critically acclaimed release from alternative rockers, Portugal. The Man, Evil Friends.



The album climbed our charts here at KAFM, and stayed in the top ten for several weeks. Lance, of Radio Rapture, had this to say about the album:

Quintet, formed in Wasilla AK and now residing in Portland OR., carry on with their 8th studio release and first with producer Danger Mouse. Big, dramatic, fast paced, grim and gloomy. Nice blend of synths and acoustic with falsetto vocals from front man JB Gourley. DM and P. TM - a match made in ----?

Portugal. The Man will be touring later this year, and will be at Red Rocks on August 21st!
