MGMT / Re: The 3rd Album self-titled MGMT
« on: February 14, 2015, 04:02:24 PM »
Okay so i swear there is more to the art then we can see. Anyone have any ideas? If you have the vinyl the back has a weird textrue and a shadow pic of them. Also the sleeve has like little computer chip looking things for each track . And are their shirts digital? What does it all mean????

it's on the back of the CD case too, their shadow silhouettes.

The whole "staticy-computer-virus" theme throughout the booklet I think is just a reflection of the sounds of this album:
how the songs all sound very fuzzy, claustrophobic, overwhelming, and digital (if that makes sense).

As for their shirts, they're actually photoshopped (I thought they were real at first).
I remember someone posted the original photo a little while after the album came out and Ben's shirt
is actually plain white while Andrew's was white with some blue words on it (if anyone could post it that'd be cool.)

On a side note, does anyone remember shortly after the album was released that there was a listing for a "Stylz Unlimited T-shirt" on the merch site but when you clicked on it, it would say some like "available soon" and had no image? It ended up getting removed after a few months I believe. I always thought that was going to be fuzzy-datamosh shirt like the ones Ben and Andrew wore on the cover and was super disappointed when the listing disappeared with no explanation.

I think the bird cage is important. There was that photo of them inside of a thing that looked like a bird cage from Congratulations, but now they're outside the cage...

Yep. That was my first thought when I saw it. I thought of the Gazebo and the quote, "What is a Gazebo if not a birdcage for humans?"  I think that was Ben on World Cafe. It's not a direct quote and I'm on a lot of meds these days. It's all foggy.

The Show / Re: Where would you like to see the band play?

Thanks for your response lala. You are thinking fox theatre in Pomona. I was referring to the recently opened Fox theatre in Riverside. It's about 30 minutes from Pomona.

Oh wow that's got to be super confusing!  I can't imagine how many people are going to show up at the wrong theatre :(

Reminds me of a funny story.  Last year I was seeing American Idiot (the National Broadway Tour).  There were two guys outside desperately trying to sell their tickets.....because, you guessed it.  They thought they were seeing Green Day.

MGMT / Re: Blikk Fang is finally happening! (Andrew and Kevin Barnes)

"We received word today that the shipment from New York was delayed by the crazy weather earlier this week and were not going to get the records in time to get the packages out by the end of the month.
 
That was the bad news...
 
The GOOD news is that the February 7 was shipped alongside the January 7, so as soon as they get here, our entire office is going to have a big ole' packing party to get both 7s shipped out to you as quickly as we can! We anticipate this will happen next week. You'll receive an email notification with tracking information when that happens."

What can we gather here? Bikk fang is first on the list? They already got febuarys from where ever so ny must mean andrew and kevin. Hopefully.

That's exciting!  Thanks Owl!

Getting a little love from Spin!

Stream Kuroma's Glam-Pop Gem 'Love Is on the Way'

The Hank Sullivant-fronted outfit's new single is a sublime little groover
An early member of the Whigs and a guitarist for MGMT, Hank Sullivant found his own voice as singer/guitarist of the four-piece pop/rock outfit Kuroma. The group's third album, the excellent (and superlatively titled) Kuromarama, is due out later this spring, and the new single from it is the irresistible "Love Is on the Way." The song marries a Bo Diddley riff to a boogeying shuffle and a lithe falsetto, united by a '70s sort of cheesy utopianism. The final product is like Scissor Sisters covering David Bowie's "Up the Hill Backwards," and just as delectible as that description would imply.

This makes me deliriously happy!

California please. Fox theatre in Riverside- intimate venue. Not tooo, but just enough.
It's 40 min from LA, 20 min from the OC. Located sowntownm by " The Mission Inn" where many presidents and starlets have stayed-many Gardens, Water Features, Fountains, Terraces, secret pathways.... things you'd see in a castle.
Have i sold you on it yet? :p

They played there in 2010  :)

MGMT / Our Birthday Wishes for Andrew, 2015
« on: January 25, 2015, 02:06:16 AM »
I can't attempt anything cute.  I am trying to avoid going to the hospital-but Andrew...I hope you have a wonderful day filled with more laughter and love than you can handle.  I want to say thank you for everything, but you're the word man.  Mine would be sorely inadequate when I'm at my very best.  So I won't try to be clever or cute, I just want to say thank you for making such beautiful music and reopening the world to me.  :-*  Happy birthday

tumblr says pictures of dead rabbits are included in the fanzine... thats pretty fucking crazy haha i love it!

Well I'm glad you love it.  You seem to be alone on that one.  Mine sat on my dining room table for two days before I even opened it.  I opened it, glanced at it and threw it down.  I can't handle that shit and that seems to be the consensus.

Hey!

It's been a while since i've been on here but despite searches, it seems my question below still remains unanswered...

NowLetsHaveSomeFun, can you find a video of it on YouTube?


I feel stupid for not doing this before now!  :-[

It's right at the start here: MGMT - Week End Wars - Live in Paris - Bataclan 08/10/2010 (Congratulations Tour)

Someone out there must know it!


Please! Somebody must be able to nail this. Shazam never seems to work!  :'(
what are we looking for?


Yes, what's the question?
