Veronica, Owl, do either of you know the time frame on this? I'm so not up to date on anything right now. I'm in NYC and rarely on line.
Get the album "MGMT" on iTunes, CD, or vinyl here. Album includes the "Optimizer" listening and viewing experience.
I have only listened to Lucy, and my comments were actually inspired by The Beatles not the Lios. That being said, I do like a lot of the Lips stuff, however, I wasn't really fond of the last album. I just started blabbering about my reaction to Lucy. I'm not sure what produced my warm reception of that song. I only listened to it once.I just heard Lucy for the first time yesterday. I thought it was brilliant but here's what I was wondering...was it a brilliant remake or was it a remake of a brilliant song? Sometimes I forget just how incredible The Beatles were. This is going to be the most old fogey thing I've ever written ("old fogey" is the second most): I'm just so sad about the music "kids today" are listening to. It's utter rubbish on the radio. I think that one of the absolute greatest things that I did as a parent is expose my kids to good music. I gave them the foundation and they did the rest. I remember hearing The Beatles blaring from my son's room one night. He had "found" them on his own. Now I'm not implying that there isn't great music being made now-we're Here , aren't we? It's the manufactured, over produced, prefab, formulated shit that's on the radio that makes me sad. Yes, there is some art out there, but most of it is formulated, money making garbage. It's so distressing because music is so important. For most, it's the first form of art and beauty that reaches out and touches us. It makes us feel. Music needs to be experienced. Kids need to be awakened and their souls need to be touched by art.i totally agree with your message but don't you think that this album was a little over cooked? i love worm mountain but this is just crazy over drive, fuzz, noise, and featuring some "artists" that fit perfectly with "formulated, money making garbage"
Sorry...I really did mosey in here just to say I liked a song.
Well she's just a doll! I'm so happy that she had you to rely on and that she had such a great time.
Okay, so here's a fun story. Several days ago, Bubble posted in a thread that we have and asked, "Quick!! My friend is trying to win a contest and she needs to know who MGMT were asked to collaborate with and didn't do it?!?!" I said, "Jay Z." So I had forgotten all about it and and then I ran across these pics (more in the Peru thread) and posted them. I don't think that I've ever actually posted fan pics before, but I just thought that these were so adorable. Well, I'm sure you've guessed by now that Bubble's friend won the contest with that answer and this is her! So how funny is it that I gave her the answer and then I was struck by her picture and posted my first fan photos? It's a funny little mgmt world, isn't it? Congratulations Lovely! I hope that you had a wonderful experience
"It's a funny little mgmt world, isn't it?" THIS!!!!!
I helped her with a few other questions and it was fun!! Questions like "when Andrew was a kid, what did he want to be when he grew up? Or when did he start surfing? lol those were easy.
She had the time of her life. She also met Matt and Will. She realized Will is prettier than the rest of the boys. Duh. <3
