portugal the man evil friends

Here’s a factoid worth remembering for a future game of Trivia Pursuit: 2012 marked the first year since 2006 that Portugal. the Man did not release a new album. On June 4th, however, the pride and joy of Wasilia, Alaska will finally return with their seventh album, Evil Friends, which was produced by none other than Danger Mouse.

The album’s title track serves as its first single and, boy, does it kick some serious ass. There’s definitely a Broken Bells vibe going on for the first 60 or so seconds, but then the guitars rev up and we’re back in the UK circa 2009. Yeah, this one should particularly tickle fans of Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, The Fratellis, and all those other Brit alt-rock bands.

It should also be noted that the song’s video involves snowmobiles.

Evil Friends Tracklist:
01. Plastic Soldiers
02. Creep In A T-Shirt
03. Evil Friends
04. Modern Jesus
05. Hip Hop Kids
06. Atomic Man
07. Sea of Air
08. Waves
09. Holy Roller (Hallelujah)
10. Someday Believers
11. Purple Yellow Red and Blue
12. Smile

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
to your new updates.

You hit it right on the nail because when I was watching this video and listening to the song all I could think was that this was so much very an Arctic Monkeys type of song in a very much good way. Now I thought that this was because besides being a long time Portugal. The Man fan, the Arctic Monkeys are one of my favorites however it seems that someone else saw this similarity. Definitely a good song.
