In the seven years they've been together the Portland, Ore. (by way of Wasilla, Ala.) psych-rock quintet Portugal. The Man (note the artfully placed period) have released six studio albums and nearly as many EPs; endured the theft of nearly all their gear after Lollapalooza 2011; and survived the jump from self-releasing their albums to the major label Atlantic.
Through it all, the band have continued to crank out tranquil, lush indie rock inflected with hints of psychedelia, prog and folk. The band sat down with Mary Lucia to discuss growing up in Alaska, their songwriting process, Sesame Street and more.
Songs played: "So American," "All Your Light" and "Got It All."
