Portugal. The Man: In The Mountain In The Cloud

Not sure how I first stumbled onto Portugal. The Man, but I listened to In The Mountains, In The Cloud for weeks on their website while the album sat on my want list for months but kept getting passed over for more important wants. Always searching for new music, the want list is always a mile long.

For their 6th album in as many years, Portugal. The Man move to a major label and sound better than ever with the most solid record they've produced while keeping their hat beautifully tipped towards the glam rock of the 70's.

This lands in my top 10 new music list for 2011, which I will detail here soon.

A beautiful pressing on white vinyl in a single LP jacket with printed inner sleeve featuring lyrics and credits. No download or CD is included with retail versions. LPs purchased through the band's web store do come with download card: still available here.

All album art (and t-shirts, concert posters, etc, for this and every P.TM album) is by lead singer & mustachioed cutie John Gourley.

Thanks to good friends Angie & Mike for the Spoonful gift certificate for Christmas that finally got this off the want list.
