Sneak Peek Trailer for MGMT Album
« on: August 31, 2013, 05:28:25 PM »

"The Avant/Garde Diaries will premier a sneak peek trailer for the album directed by Jordan Fish on Wednesday, September 4, 2013. The visual showcase will highlight five new songs from the album, and promises viewers a unique, if not surreal, look into the current leanings of the band and their sound.  If MGMT’s previous work is a foreshadowing of what’s to come, no matter how off-the-wall, it’s going to be worth a listen. Be sure to head over to The Avant/Garde Diaries (http://www.theavantgardediaries.com/) next Wednesday to catch the premier."

HOLY CRAP!!! What an amazing thing to wake up to. I had really terrible nightmares, so this helped.

The songs sound PERFECT, everything I could want. I am absolutely beyond excited! Literally squealing.

wow. i'm kind of shocked! totally surprised me there. interesting that they put the whole nsa thing. im glad its meant to be funny. matt asti killed me!!
best line for me was "oh that *imitates clicking noise*? no i can't hear it." loll

the songs sound so weird and cool and spacey, im definately interested to hear the weird techniques they used to record this! the vocals on introspection! ah!

as with all great classic bands in history, i'm still sad they departed from congrats and that won't change but i can at least accept this as something new that sounds different and cool. it seems they totally took a left turn from congrats tho, and that i guess im kinda sad about, but things change and i just gotta deal with their cool experiments lol

but very cool short film and music!!!

I don't think it's too far of a departure from Congratulations. They've just did more experimentation in the studio and it's a much more darker kind of psychedelia. If anything, they're just expanding on what they did on Congratulations and making it weirder.

Hilarious/awesome video, by the way. The studio version of Mystery Disease sounds fantastic, as does Introspection (I was worried it would sound too much like Faine Jade's original version and not fit in with the rest of the album). The very first song (I think it was Cool Song No. 2?) sounded incredible. Can't wait to hear what this all sounds together.

Introspection sounds wayyy better than i thought it would. This is so awesome, AOTY/D incoming. Also, the NSA is probably watching them forealzies.

Apparently a fan gave it to Andrew months ago as a gift.

They're the sweetest. I love them so much.

I love that they did this.  I was at the show the fan gave Andrew this, it was at Common Ground in Michigan.  You can see him holding it below.  The source of the photo is niishode on instagram. Ok I'm going to go watch this a few more times and be back to actually comment on it finally.

I just can't. This was too, too good. I'm so glad I waited until I got home from work to watch this. Otherwise I would've looked like an idiot to my co-workers with squealing and flailing arms.

I love how they put Fort Meade, MD on the map! haha Murdalaand represent! jk.

Even though it was such a short sample, I just know I'm going to be in absolute love with the first song that played.

Finally, someone please give Matt an Oscar, for realz

First of all, I am so glad they did this.  It's cool to see them in this element.  The drums in Cool Song No. 2 are sweet, has kind of a tribal feel.  Mystery Disease is the song I've been waiting to hear the studio version of and it didn't disappoint.  There were lots of sounds in Introspection that I haven't been able to pick up live. 

Love that Bette made an appearance and even cooler that James was playing her. I think all the MGMT stuff in the NSA office was a nice touch, I noticed all the photos, the MGMT mug, the setlist, and even photos coming out of the fax machine.  Then there was the drone they've been using at shows all decked out as a reptile. When YLIAL cuts in, it makes me realize now more than ever how different it sounds than the other songs and I wonder how deliberate making that song a single was.

I noticed there are lots of confused facial expressions in the trailer.  I know it suits the material, but I can't help but project that onto other aspects which leaves a lot of questions, but that's looking way too much into things.  I like that we got to see Andrew doing everyday things and that all the boys were in it.  Matt was hilarious.  I was also reminded of the quote where Andrew says he can't act because he has trouble being anything he isn't. 

Overall, well done, and thank you, MGMT.

This was awesome! Also, notice all the bracelets he's wearing and the girl too? I wonder if they're all fan gifts?

ALSO -- I really hope this is a prelude to a new video! it is such a cool style, funny and well done.

I can hear some nice sounds in this funny teaser :)
I was disappointed by YLIAL and now a bit more confident because I read 3 reviews of the album on the French press: 1 didn't like at all the new album, 2 loved it!
Can't scan it but there are 2 long articles + photo shoots + interview of the boys in 2 magazines, you can see the covers featuring Ben and Andrew here:

I love this so much. I've been avoiding listening to the live recordings of new songs because I honestly was afraid I might not like them. I almost didn't want to watch this but I'm so glad I did and now there's no doubt in my mind that this album is going to sound amazing. It's different from anything they've done but at the same time it doesn't sound like anything else but MGMT to me.

Overall, well done, and thank you, MGMT.

Yes, Thank you MGMT! You guys make happy. I loved seeing everybody too. I'm glad you mentioned that quote from Andrew! He said that during the making of Flash Delirium video, I think. That's one of the first things I thought of! I can't help but Lol all over the place at "...you guys, we need to get outta here. Now." though :P Matt was amazing and Ben having a leg knife was great.  ;D When I imagine them as a band, this is how I imagine them haha

Cool Song No. 2 perked up my ears more than I thought it would! It wasn't one of the titles that caught my eye. Introspection too. I don't typically care for covers just in general, but it sounds really good. And of course I think almost all of us can all agree that we're dying to listen to Mystery Disease fully. Overall, the songs remind me of different aspects of Siberian Breaks, Future Reflections, and even Metanoia. I guess most specifically it's that open, expansive quality that I think is making me draw that connection. These new songs have so much of that and I'm really excited about it. Everything sounds so wide and creates such a sense of space. The aural equivalent to staring up at a big, starry night sky. At the same time they're kind of "warm". Expansive sounding/feeling, but encompassing (probably not the word I'm looking for) and engaging and not empty feeling in all that open atmosphere. Just awesome. It's the most MGMT sounding stuff ever in a way.

♥ A Good Sadness SO much. I knew it! I fucking knew it. I can't wait to just sink into that song.

You were totally right. I had refrained from crying-even through Siberian Breaks.
Then I heard it, and was smiling and crying and so was the crazy chick next to me.
