reggae and r&b from hawaii’s Rylee Anuheake’alaokalokelani Jenkins… thankfully better known as Anuhea. she’s got some seriously sultry pipes, and “Big Deal”, off her new self-titled record is a solid summer jam that teaches us Anuhea has no shame about keeping her ego in check.
a few from their fourth coming album The Satanic Satanist due July 21st. portugal. the man are a particularly prolific and consistent band.. four albums in four years is definitely an accomplishment, especially considering they’re all pretty dec. only US dates are lolla and outside lands this summer, stoked to hear the new stuff live. “what a lovely day yeah we won the war, we may have lost a million people but we got a million more… it’ll be alright… all the people they’ll see” you know, just telling it like it is..
the thievery touch to this makes it perfect.
what a killer hodgepodge of sounds. i wasn’t surprised when i found out these brooklynites were a sub-pop band, or that they are made up of indie vets from Pitchfork, Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, Edsel and Shortstack.. blame you came out in march and it has some great garage rock on it. most importantly, they have a killer photo section on their myspace.
