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.
Also check out one of our favorite MGMT remix/mashups ever of MGMT vs LCD Soundsystem – “All My Children” (Immuzikation Remix) Make it an MGMT day. Your coworkers and roomates will love you for it. Maybe.
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.
