Portugal. The Man – Evil Friends

Posted: August 8, 2013 in Vinyl

Evil Friends is Portugal. The Man’s second album on a major label, Atlantic Records. Since then variants and pressing info have gone the wayside. Whatever your opinion on that stuff, their music has not suffered the dreaded drop off after singing to a major label. Evil Friends is their best album in a while, and that’s saying something. Danger Mouse was the producer for this album, and he made a big difference.

The record was pressed on 180 gram black vinyl and has the stock Atlantic center labels which match the artwork, being half yellow and half black. The marketing campaign the band did over social networking services with the different faces is fully utilized in the artwork for the record. The vinyl version of the album features alternate artwork for starters. Inside the gatefold are two different faces, a third face is on the back of the jacket and a fourth face is on the insert, all with the various symbols or pieces of artwork plastered over them. Instead of a download code a CD is included with the record.
