Modern Jesus

File under Ones to Watch. Portugal. The Man is a radio discovery and stupid name notwithstanding, they’re very good. Just to be clear though, they are a band consisting of more than one man (though singer John Gourley and his mustache are the clear focal point) and they are from Alaska, not Portugal. Just in case anyone was confused. They’ve been around for nearly a decade, but didn’t begin getting major recognition until recently. They’ve put out seven albums, the last two since signing to Atlantic in 2011. With big label support comes publicity, radio play, and collaborations with people like Danger Mouse and Haim.
