New Music Video: Portugal. The Man

    Fresh off of their first ever television appearance, Portugal. The Man have given us more of them to look at via a new music video for "So American." And that is precisely what the video is: American. Hanging down by the water, strumming guitars by the bonfire, shotgunning PBRs, and swigging Maker's Mark right from the bottle. You name it, this video couldn't be more inspired by some Fourth of July barbecues. You can almost smell the salt water and charred hamburgers wafting through the monitor of your computer screen. The only things missing are the fireworks. The song, featuring light guitar, moving string arrangements, and singer John Baldwin Gourley's alluring melody, plays like the perfect soundtrack for a summer-time cookout.





    Thanks for rubbing salt in our summer wound, Portugal. Anyway, while I lament over the passing of the seasons and the severe lack of water-side, brew-filled chilling, you should go check out Portugal. The Man on tour. AMERICA.
