Evil Friends [Explicit Content]
Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release, the seventh album from the Portland-based Alt-Rock band. Evil Friends was produced by Danger Mouse - AKA Brian Burton, the five-time Grammy award winning producer behind everything from Gnarls Barkley and Beck to the Black Keys and U2. Danger Mouse and the band agreed that they were game for the challenge and began production on what would become Evil Friends, the undaunted re-awakening for Portugal. The Man. As much as their collaborative imaginations melded, to construct songs that lived up to the ambitious visions they had would take some time. After all, here was a band with an evolving lineup building new songs with a new producer trying to do something neither of them had done before. Each track on Evil Friends is as different from the next as Portugal. The Man's previous records were from each other, which is to say a piece of a growing mindscape, and wholly a part of the group's tumbling fever dream.
