Published May 30, 2013While, sure, you could wait until Tuesday (June 4) to pick up Portland-based psych-pop unit Portugal. The Man's new Danger Mouse-produced LP, Evil Friends, we'll let you in on a secret: the band are already streaming the set in full on their Tumblr page.
Along with previously revealed cuts like "Purple Yellow Red and Blue" and "Evil Friends," you can check out tracks like "Plastic Soldiers" — an atmospheric give-and-take of pianos, violins and textured beatwork — or the chipper pop anthem "Modern Jesus." While you're there, you can check out a creepy gif of spiralling severed demon heads.
As previously reported, Portugal. The Man are heading out on a North American tour next month. There are a few Canadian stops included on the trek, and you can see the schedule here.
Evil Friends arrives via Atlantic.
