In the Mountain in the Cloud
IN THE MOUNTAIN IN THE CLOUD marks Portugal. The Man's sixth full-length in as many years, as well as the band's debut for Atlantic Records. Carrying forth the momentum triggered by their unexpected rise in 2006, and their FM airwave success of -People Say- (from 2009's THE SATANIC SATANIST), IN THE MOUNTAIN IN THE CLOUD continues the pattern of an album per calendar year, a feat made all the more staggering when you consider the band's fervent devotion to the open road, logging over 800 shows-performing everywhere from freight elevators to a mesmerizing set at Bonnaroo-since their inception. IN THE MOUNTAIN IN THE CLOUD marks the first recording by the band to accurately harness their onstage energy; it's a recording that places Portugal. The Man's devout work ethic and singular vision on full display.
