Portugal. The Man’s latest album, The Satanic Satanist, opens up with a guitar riff straight out of a Lynyrd Skynyrd song and maintains a consistent down-home feel for the duration of the album. This southern influence seems strange for a band from Alaska, but this album seems to be, at times, derived from southern rock bands such as Skynyrd and presents a strong mix of gospel-like vocals and hippie love-rock anthems in its own alternative packaging.
