Today’s Indie: Modern Jesus / Portugal. The Man

‘who cares if hell awaits / we’re having drinks at heaven’s gates’

I have never been able to get over the misplaced period in Portugal. The Man’s name (didn’t that sentence just confuse you?) but that hasn’t stopped me from thoroughly enjoying the Portlandian quintet’s bliss inducing sound. Modern Jesus is off the band’s seventh full length studio effort, Evil Friends, out last Tuesday, and  it has me stuck on repeat. The playful Nintendo ping intro giving way to casual do-do-doos and then John Gourley’s catching vocals echoing  relevant lyrics (‘you don’t need sympathy / they got a pill for everything  / just take that dark cloud / ring it out to wash it now’) make Modern Jesus the perfect steady chill segue into the weekend. #indie/tory
