First, can we just talk about how stellar this promo by John Gourley (P.TM vocalist!) and Austin Seller is? I have to admit one of my favorite things about Portugal. The Man is all the artwork—especially the In the Mountain in the Cloud cover. 

Now to the music. This Alaskan psychedelic band does weird so right you can't help but be transported to their mystical world. P.TM delivers a sound that is not only vivaciously
 melodic and infectious, but also consistently refreshing with each new album.

If you're a first time listener, I recommend starting with their fourth album, The Satantic Satanist. You should then be able to decide if you want to backtrack to their edgier Mars Volta-esque days, or get their newer albums that are a bit softer and crisper. Plus, you can go ahead and start turning heads when you tell people you are listening to an album with such a title.  Happy listening!
