We admit it, we have a soft spot for Portugal. The Man
One of many reasons is the social conscience they bring to their music, a social conscience that has most recently been brought to bear to raise awareness for the endangered Sumatran Tiger, of which only 400 remain in the wild.
The band has created the world’s first song that is made to go extinct, unless it is reproduced. With only 400 copies of the record produced on vinyl that will breakdown after a certain number of listens, the band have put the onus on us, the music community, to help keep the song alive.
The rips are popping up left right and centre, with this soundcloud link below the best we’ve heard yet.
So listen to the track, learn more about the project here and keep the endangered song alive.
And Portugal. The Man, don’t ever change your stripes
