Portugal. The Man - Feel It Still

I know very little about Portugal. The Man, which is quite embarrassing considering they've been active since 2004 and still sound as good as they do. Portugal. The Man are a five piece from Alaska, and that's exciting in itself really because the only other band I can think of that hail from Alaska are 36 Crazyfists and well... they're worlds apart. I highly doubt I've been looking particularly hard but it's always super interesting hearing music from areas of the planet that aren't entirely over-saturared with bands/artists of similar genres. But also they're now based in Portland, Oregon so I guess this was all a bit pointless, just like my life, but oh well.

Back in 2014, Portugal. The Man started work on their eighth studio album but it was eventually scrapped before the band took the time to write a whole new record, now titled Woodstock, which is supposedly set for released in June this year. Woodstock's lead single is 'Feel It Still' and I wish that every band could opt for a comeback that goes this hard. It's the instant setting of pace and sense of urgency, long before the vocals or brass section arrive, that's enough to get anybody excited. Then this insanely infectious chorus hook appears and I honestly don't think I've ever heard anything more sync-worthy - advertising companies will be being pitched 'Feel It Still' for the rest of time.

If I had any desire to be a decent journalist type I would have done some research and what follows would likely be a very different narrative, but as it happens, I am me. I've never listened to a full Portugal. The Man album, so I'm not too sure what we can hope to expect from Woodstock given this first single but surely it would be insane to think it'll be a let down? What an album for summer too!

    1. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
