Portugal. The Man was born in Alaska, but it might as well be a Denver band, with how often it seems like the cats come through here, how much we've embraced them and how bro'd down they are with locals like the Photo Atlas, whom they toured with last year. The act's new album, Censored Colors -- which is freaking awesome, in case you're wondering -- comes out next Tuesday. No need to wait until then or to take our word for it, though. Stop by the act's MySpace page to listen to Colors in its entirety. Oh and for an added bit of enlightenment, stop by the act's site to read John Baldwin Gourley's thoughts on veep hopeful Sarah Palin, who also hails from Wasilla, Gourley's hometown. -- Dave Herrera
