Portugal. The Man - So American
Not much into this Alaskan band for the most part but a friend at the time convinced me to see them live and that I’d like them as a fan of The Mars Volta. I enjoyed their 2011 album In the Mountain in the Cloud and some of their earlier stuff, which is hit or miss. Skipping through the tracks of this album now it sounds like a mix of TMV, Yeasayer, and Peter Bjorn & John.

Modest Mouse - Grey Ice Water

You got a job up in Alaska
It’s easy to save what the cannery pays
Cause there ain’t no way to spend it

Hoping someone else nominates Trucker’s Atlas.

Oh shit, hopefully I can nominate one from another band since there might not be too many and it just dawned on me.

311 - Fuck the Bullshit

You know I’ve never visited Alaska
Huh, where the oil was spilt
That drunken captain should be killed
For polluting the sea, an atrocity
He still walks free, well
This one goes to all the birds that drown
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down

A little misguided but their hearts were in the right place!
