Last spring, two weeks and 10 songs into the recording process for their new album, Evil Friends, Portugal. The Man scrapped nearly everything they’d accomplished. “We were super excited about it,” bassist Zach Carothers tells us of scrapping all but two songs they recorded in El Paso, TX. Instead, they started from scratch with producer Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton, an opportunity Carothers describes as “not anything that we could turn down.” The result of the PTM-Danger Mouse collaboration is the band’s most accessible and radio-friendly material yet. While still retaining Portugal’s characteristically varied sound.
