Portugal. The Man never seem to tire out. It hasn’t been a year since they released The Satanic Satanist, and already they will be releasing their fifth album, American Ghetto, this May. This promises to be another giant step forward for these hard working rock and roll vagabonds. Their first single “The Dead Dog” finds The Man running through another terrifying tale with a catchy hook and wonderful experimentation of instrumentals, the likes of which have not been heard of in some time. If the spirit and social contemplation of this song is supposed to represent the beautiful complexity of the forthcoming album, then we are in for a real treat. But who would really be surprised or expect anything less from these guys?
