This is in the Glasto thread, but I don't want it to get overlooked.  It's quite good.  Weekend Wars is particularly lovely..into SB.  Sweet

Lala, I do sincerely hope I get to meet you one day. I feel like I already do know you even though I don't post on here too much. I do believe that you can fight and beat this thing and keep on being an awesome badass for years to come!  :)

Hi bb!  Speaking of badass, congrats on reaching the summit of Mt Ranier!!!  So cool!  Unfortunately what I have is incurable and terminal, but I continue to fight for some extra time.  :-*

Simon broke his toe jumping over a monitor during Baba O'Riley.  These boys and their broken bones.

Anand Wilder & Maxwell Kardon Ė ďIím To BlameĒ

For years, Yeasayer singer and multi-instrumentalist (and Stereogum buddy) Anand Wilder and his friend Maxwell Kardon have been working on Break Line, a musical about a Pennsylvania coal town. The musical, in album form, is finally done. It comes out later this month, and it features appearances from members of bands like Yeasayer, MGMT, Dirty Projectors, and Vampire Weekend. Weíve posted the first single ďWedding Day,Ē and now theyíve shared another song, a psychedelic rock freakout called ďIím To Blame.Ē Listen to it below.

I'm hoping it'll pop up. It was frustrating not to be able to watch the stream. I'm glued to Wimbledon, but maybe some lovely Googler will find it and post it   :-*

A quickie with MGMT's lead singer about their upcoming trip to South Africa
2014-06-27 07:00
by Alex Isaacs

Cape Town Ė In case you missed it, MGMT are coming to South Africa for two festivals later this year.

We were offered the opportunity to speak to the lead singer of the Grammy-award-winning band: Andrew VanWyngarden while the electronic rockers are on tour in Eastern Europe.

He told us about his influences, what touristy things he's looking forward to doing in mzansi and explained the video for one of their latest singles.

Channel24:
Weíre so excited for your first shows on South African soil at Vodacom in The City and Rocking the Daisies this October.

Are there any fun activities that you have planned other than rocking the stage, like shark cage diving or something crazy?

Andrew:
Iím excited and really happy (to be playing in South Africa).

Thatís the first question everyone has been asking us (laughs) not specifically shark cage diving though. I would like to do that! Letís do it!

Channel24:
Youíve played music festivals from Glastonbury to Coachella, what do you like about festival shows and why say yes to festival shows in South Africa?

Andrew:
Well, weíve never been to South Africa or even the continent of Africa so it seemed like a great trip to make and thatíll be sort-of-a once in a lifetime experience or maybe itís not. Maybe weíll come back, that would be cool too.

Iíve heard so much about it through surfing and I donít know, just excited to check it out, have a new experience. (Sic)

Channel24:
We love your tweets with different music videos, which artists inspired your latest self-titled album, MGMT?

Andrew:
Oh man, so many so many different ones...I think in terms of the kind of layers of sound on the latest album itís kind-of influenced by a lot of early 90s bands like AR Cane and this English band called Disco Inferno.

I think both those bands do this multi layered...non standard way of making chords and weíre using a lot of analogue synthesizers, thereís this one called the Phoenix and other bands who use it like Aphex Twin and some other electronic artists (have been influential).

Channel24:
One of your latest singles, off that album, Cool Song 2 has a beautiful video that we love. Could you tell us more about it, whatís the story behind it?

Andrew:
Itís different from any other video that weíve had. The director Isaiah Seret he came up with the story line after we went back and forth a bit but it was really his idea.

I think itís kind of like a love story that takes the form of this weird disease happening. This guy turning into a tree and this other guy trying to save him. I think itís really cool, (itís a shame) that we werenít actually at the shoot because we got to film at this beautiful place in Los Angeles where this guy doesnít usually let people film.

Yeah, all in all it has a pretty unsettling vibe but it fits the song so well (sic).

And thatís it for our quickie, thanks Andrew.

MGMT / Re: New Album
« on: June 24, 2014, 08:17:12 PM »
I know that there are at least three threads already for a fourth album. The more threads we have, the more difficult it is for forumers and guests to navigate the forum. This should go in one of those threads or really in Random MGMT thoughts. Yes, I'm a neat freak, but I just want the site to be easily navigable for users and especially guests. If someone visits and gets frustrated, they'll bail. Being an Official Forum, activity is important. As always, my goal is to keep MGMT in business  :-*

sorry i thought they were all deleted due to people not wanting rumors started

Nope they're here and you don't owe an apology :)
You were just sharing info and I'm just redirecting you to keep us organized.  I always think hard about starting a new thread.  Most of the time, there's already a place and usually it's the mgmt thoughts thread.  In this case, there were at least three places for it.
