It’s rainy here in New York and what better way to start your dreary night than with some MGMT? Remix Fridays is personally one of my favorite things. Highlighting great bands being remixed by other great musicians is something that can’t be beat when it’s done right. This week’s Remix is MGMT’s “Congratulations,” remixed by Spell Your Name With Numbers. Sit back, chill out, watch the rain, and enjoy some MGMT.
MGMT – “CONGRATULATIONS” – Spell Your Name With Numbers Remix by ModernMystery3
MGMT. You’ve won. After personally being a bit skeptical about the upcoming record Congratulations (Columbia), I think this morning was the deciding factor. The glam clad boys have released the first video from the record for “Flash Delirium.” It’s not overly flashly for once. It’s artsy, and really brings the song to a new level. Ben Goldwasser finally comes into his own as an actor (haha) as Andrew VanWyngarden plays the sidekick to his creepy “Welcome Home,” party. It’s just not right to reveal everything in the video, because then it would ruin everything, right?
Take a peak HERE AND WATCH!
Congratulations is due out April 13th.

I’m not sure what to make of the new MGMT song. Titled “Flash Delirium,” it sounds nothing like their prior work. This of course can be seen as a good and bad thing. The good being that the group has evolved into another animal. The bad being, well, it comes off a bit as an Of Montreal copy. Yes we know that the boys are tight with Barnes and Co., but what we didn’t expect is this. Where is the dance beats we’ve grown to love? Why are there flutes in the song? (That’s right, flutes). I guess we’ll have to hear the whole album to come to a final decision but right now MGMT has us a bit baffled. Will they be able to come out of their sophomore slump with a victory? Wait and see.
Download “Flash Delirium,” and check out the band’s second record, Congratulations (Columbia) due out April 8th.
It’s been over two years since glam band MGMT released their first record, and now they are finally set to return. The band will put out their second LP titled Congratulations (Columbia), on April 13th. This was certainly a best kept secret for a while and the official news only leaked out early this week. The album is all set to be released with only nine songs that are said to flow together perfectly (take a look at some of the oddball names below).
“It’s Working,” “Song for Dan Treacy,” “Someone’s Missing,” “Flash Delirium,” “I Found a Whistle,” “Siberian Breaks,” “Brian Eno,” “Lady Dada’s Nightmare,” and “Congratulations.”
This time around the duo of Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser are were joined in the studio by their live backing band, fully rounding out the sound. Congratulations was produced by MGMT and Sonic Boom from Spacemen 3. This will certainly be a make or break record for the band, but we think they’ll do just fine. Check back to in the near future for MGMT updates and tour dates!
Super hipsters MGMT have finally released a video for their ever catchy song, ‘Kids’ and I’m not sure if it could be any weirder. As some may recall there was that, well awkward, homemade video that has been posted on Youtube for the past year of the song, but now the band has made it official. The rumor is that it took months to make. MGMT appears only briefly in the video wrapped in silver and with face paint, and yes, that is Joanna Newsom making an appearance. Chances are the kid in the video will need therapy, especially since he had to appear with those creepy monsters.
MGMT has also just remixed Violen’s ‘Doomed’ which is a nice touch since the band remixed MGMT’s ‘Time to Pretend’ a while ago. This is certainly something worth downloading.
