Portugal. The Man – “Got It All (This Can’t Be Living Now)”

Portugal. The Man is not a man they’re a machine. In the six years of the band’s existence they’ve released an album every year and to great surprise, none of them suck either. I’ll have to admit that I didn’t really start listening until 2009′s The Satanic Satanist but since than have been enthralled by the band and their work ethic.

For almost two months the band has been screwing with us. Releasing short snip-its of tracks from the forth coming album In The Mountain, In The Cloud. Finally, today we have our first full track to listen to. “Got It All (This Can’t Be Living Now)” is not a far cry from the typical sound that we’re used to hearing from the guys.

There are pros and cons to the formula that Portugal. The Man have been using. By releasing an album every year they have never taken the time to evaluate their sound. Music is an ever changing market with new ears listening everyday. If a band isn’t trying to push the envelope and releasing the same album (no matter how great it is) year after year there’s great potential there for fans to drop off. On the other side though, there’s so much crap music out there that it’s nice to have a constant that you can rely on to produce something listenable time after time.

Portugal. The Man – “Got It All (This Can’t Be Living Now)”

“So American”
“All Your Light (Times Like These)”
“Once Was One”
“You Carried Us (Share With Me The Sun)”

In The Mountain, In The Cloud is out July 19th via Atlantic Records.
