Gourley parts ways with his band only to run into Howerton, and the two soon find themselves with linked fingers laced with lightning. Clocks tick and foxes decay (isn’t that clip in the opening of True Blood?), and the two are left with an uncanny resemblance to Gandalf, but with mental telepathy. Why not? There is a comical exchange of insults, an appearance by Rob McElhenney (of It’s Always Sunny), and talk of robot wars. I don’t want to spoil the whole thing, and I’m pretty sure the words “robot wars” had you reeled in if nothing got the job done earlier.
Portugal. The Man’s new album, Evil Friends, is out now, so, uh…BUY IT.
