Portugal the Man’s sound has evolved since it released the post-emo-rock Waiter: “You Vultures!” in 2006. Within a matter of years, it’s become a little more difficult to describe the band’s sound, yet it’s gained a hefty following to augment the original emo-scene fans. Its newest album, American Ghetto, mixes together jazzy sounds and psychedelic-funk melodies and proves to be a progression from previous albums. By listening to the band’s catalog of music, it’s no doubt that Portugal the Man continues to challenge and reinvent itself, and the next album, due in May, will surely be a treat. 2708 J Street, http://portugaltheman.com.
