"The Sun" by Portugal. The Man (Album: The Satanic Satanist, 2009)
“Again, it’s all 1987 to 1993 and that was so much a little kid’s mind working in all daylight during the summers and all darkness during the winters. That’s just total sci-fi. That’s so Fantastic Planet and Light Years and all the cartoons I watched when I was little. You end up just looking up at the stars for 18 hours a day. It really gets your imagination going. Everything that we did on this album lyrically was so much fun for me to do because it was so easy to step into when I was 10 years old.”
Drunken Masters have lived up to their name with party-ready remixes and Waka Flocka-sampling bootlegs currently blasting in a festival tent near you. But now, in a most excellent plot twist, the Bavarian DJ duo use a song titled “Louder” to show off their softer side (There’s got to be a German word for that.)
With psych rockers Portugal. The Man providing woozy melodies over a hypnotic, finger-snapping drop, Drunken Masters trade in their 4am ragers for a pleasant all-day buzz. Prost!
