MGMT / Ben and Andrew involved in art installation soundtrack

Jennifer Herrema Enlists Kurt Vile, MGMT, Hot Chip, More For Installation Soundtrack

Artist duo Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe asked Herrema, frontwoman of Black Bananas, to curate the immersive soundtrack

Jennifer Herrema, frontwoman of Black Bananas and formerly of Royal Trux, recently curated a group of artists for an immersive soundtrack to be used in artist duo Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe's new installation at Red Bull Studios in New York-- an interactive installation called "Scenario in the Shade". The installation debuts September 12 and will run through December 6.
"Scenario in the Shade" features a series of rooms that visitors can wander through while enjoying a soundtrack provided by the different artists on Herrema's soundtrack, which features Devendra Banhart, Kurt Vile, Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, Gang Gang Dance's Lizzi Bougatsos, Brian McKinley and Neil Hagerty (her partners from Royal Trux), RTX and the Black Bananas, MGMT's Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie, OFF!'s Mario Rubalcaba, and others.
The installation was designed to give visitors a glimpse of the youth cultures of San San International, a fictional city that "sits somewhere between San Diego and San Juan".
According to the New York Times, the display includes everything from "a Moroccan-themed, sunken living room fit for a bachelor pad and a Victorian space complete with a player piano and shelves of jars filled with random books and magazine pages" to an exit through "a modified Port-a-Potty" that lands in "the San San International courtroom; it’s situated next to a deli/arcade/performance area" where Herrema and a few of the contributors will play. “The soundtrack is completely integral,” Herrema told the Times. “Basically it will guide through these scenarios that there will be multiple intentions. Because we can make a mix for every day of the week, and you would feel differently about the space.”

Jennifer of course sang backing vocals on Flash Delirium

Wesley Stace’s Cabinet of Wonders: The Podcast

If variety is the spice of life, April’s Cabinet of Wonders, the first podcast, is the spiciest yet.

In which the show must and does go on! Imagine, if you will, a world where Southside Johnny, the godfather of the New Jersey Sound, shares a bill with Andrew VanWyngarden, lead singer of MGMT: only in the Cabinet! Andrew sings the MGMT classic “I Love You Too, Death” along with covers of beautiful psych by Les Baroques and the Brazda Brothers, while Southside sings us “Hearts of Stone”, written of course by Bruce Springsteen. The meat in the Southside/MGMT sandwich was another great New Jersey poet, your ex-Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky, with The English UK backing him on “Antique”. The assembled company then join for a celebratory, valedictory rendition of Kevin Ayer’s “Religious Experience.” (WARNING: contains excellent harmonica playing.)

Perhaps you recognize the name Hank Sullivant. He's played guitar with MGMT (and was an early member of the Whigs, but as Kuroma he's found his groove working a bright and breezy psych-pop groove and whose debut album Kuromarama was produced by MGMT's Ben Goldwasser. The quartet currently on the road (kicking off tonight) in support of said record, playing on tours supporting Ex Hex, Tennis, Tame Impala—the latter of which is clearly a match made in heaven.

The original of "20+Centuries" is zingy, kaleidoscopic kind of power pop with a herd of stallions stampeding all over it. But Jay Watson of Tame Impala cut, chopped, sauteed and stir-fried the stems of the song to make it totally unrecognizable, kicking off with a beat that's the spit of Rihanna's "Umbrella," Watson's rework is Ratatat on amphetamines, whirling on  awarp speed merry-go-round. Jump aboard.

This is just plain fun  :D

"A delicate tale of remorse, ‘Cause I’m A Man is one of Kevin Parker’s more directly confessional lyrics yet. Dressed up in a languid, ethereal groove of deft percussion, lilting bass and decadently dewy pads, with perhaps the most grandiose refrain Tame Impala has yet to commit to tape."

I don't think I can afford it at the moment. Fuck. I've been trying.
Maybe I'll just go on Sunday if possible. But I'd love to see any of you throughout the weekend.
