Ah yes its already the 4th of July tomorrow and let the picnics begin. The crew here at Modern Mystery put together a mix for your ‘Indie-pendance’ day. Whether you are heading to the beach, barbecuing some hamburgers or getting drunk by your pool, we hope you listen to it on your celebration. We tried to keep the songs ‘summer’ feeling.

MGMT- Time to Pretend
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.
