Portugal. The Man
The Week. The Vinyl Giveaway.

While we’re sad to see our week with Portugal. The Man nearing the end, we’re also excited to have not one, not two, but three copies of their newest release, 2011’s In The Mountain In The Cloud, up for grabs.

Portugal. The Man’s unique and ever-evolving sound makes it difficult to pinpoint what genre they belong in, but one thing’s for certain: they are undoubtedly one of the hardest-working bands in the business.  The Wasilla, Alaska-based band has managed to record and release a new album every year since 2006, when their debut album, Waiter: “You Vultures!” came out.  This is an especially commendable feat considering Portugal. The Man, reputed as a great live band, managed to do this amidst seemingly constant touring.

In The Mountain In The Cloud, out on Atlantic Records, is the band’s major label debut.  While many bands lose touch with their sound when they foray into major label territory, Paste says In The Mountain In The Cloud “may just be their finest album to date,” noting that Portugal. The Man’s seventh album is “an amalgamation of everything the band has done before,” but it “takes it all one step further.”  Paste also praises the “polished studio sound not quite heard on their previous work” while noting In The Mountain In The Cloud “also managed to capture the band’s raw energy that is so often praised in their live performances.”

Portugal. The Man’s name includes some purposeful punctuation.  For your chance to add In the Mountain In The Cloud to your record collection comment below and tell us another band with punctuation in its name. 

I’m going to go with AC/DC.

Three winners with North American mailing addresses will be selected a week from today, on Thursday, April 12th.
