i agree ^^ after congrats awesome cover i think they're whipping up something more. it seems like an artsy tour photo, and band photos always come out before album covers, and they havent really had any new official band photos yet
Get the new album MGMT on iTunes, CD, or vinyl here. Album includes the "Optimizer" listening and viewing experience.
Admittedly, I'm not a massive Daft Punk fan. I'm actually sort of polarized by particular songs. I think Get Lucky is the most annoying thing on the radio right now (I listen to Alt Nation or XMU, so do argue, lol), but I do like a few songs. I remember a couple of years ago reading that they love MGMT and thought that Congratulations was the best album of 2010 (duh) so I can't dismiss them since they clearly have exquisite taste in music....anyway, this was floating around tumblr (no source):
Over the last years 8 years or so when you are watching tv or possibly listening to the radio, or Pandora, or you're checking out music videos, youtube... was there anything that jumped out that was just wow, this person is doing something that is forward thinking musically? Was there any band or artist that really jumped out for you?
We really are big fans of The Strokes and Phoenix - that really define somehow the turn of the century rock and music. But the biggest impact that we felt really from a band over the last 6, 7, 8 years was probably for me, MGMT. As a band we are really big fans of their music and their approach. They made 2 great albums, and they are about to do a third one. We really feel touched by their music and their project.
I realized today how badly I want a new interview.
I was listening to Music for about an hour in a dark, quiet parking garage waiting for an appointment to be over and Siberian Breaks came up and it was perfect. I had a sorta sad day yesterday so I wasn't expecting much today. It was one of those moments where you're sort of tuning back into this space and energy you haven't been able to connect with in a while. It was so calm and everything was so clear. Very zen I guess. SB always makes me feel so nice
I don't think the MGMT track is an instrumental.
One of the Spacemen 3 songs is, though.
I guess some copies of this got out. Any of you guys get it? Oh well, at least it's still coming out at the end of the year.
Edit: Well if you're so insanely obsessed with MGMT that you want to drop $77 bucks to listen to an instrumental track a couple months early:
check out the next single, i love you to death, ac7891!
