Portugal. The Man has dabbled in everything from to art-rock to indie sounds and even classic rock and soul. On its third full-length, the band explores that last genre a bit deeper, this time coloring it with unabashedly psychedelic hues. The Portland, Ore.–based band (by way of Wasilla, Alaska) seems right at home here, due mostly to John Baldwin Gourley’s incredible falsetto, morphing chameleon-like from one style to another. He has no trouble grooving like a '70s soul diva on tracks like “Salt” or on “And I,” where he starts like a somber and passionate John Lennon and ends with layers of piano, guitar, crashing cymbals, and strings pushing his spine-tingling voice to the rafters. “Never Pleased” opens with towering layers of organs and guitars—like a ’70s rock opera—and picks up steam until Gourley’s pleading vocals fade into buzzing violins (which stealthily creep into the urgent freak-out of “Sit Back and Dream”). “1989” bends synth warbles, weepy strings, and Gourley’s supple voice into a dramatic overture. The stellar first two tracks burn through several genres in eight minutes flat, with “Lay Me Back Down” being worth the admission alone.
