After a number of indie albums, Portugal. The Man gained attention outside of the insular Portland, Ore., indie scene with its first major-label effort, 2011's In the Mountain in the Cloud. For its follow-up, Evil Friends, the band enlisted celebrated producer Brian Burton (a.k.a. Danger Mouse) to lend a distinctive atmospheric touch. Styles range from the breezy psychedelic pop of “Plastic Soldiers” to the wistful folk balladry of "Sea of Air" and the title track's fuzzed-up garage rock.
