Hey, I tried to translate it back with my rudimental english. I tried to stay as close as I could to what they said.

A few days ago, MGMT was at the Olympia so we talked to them about their new album, as far-fetched and illuminated as ever. I imagined them to be neat and distant as they are in stage but on the contrary, I met two cool and spontaneous guys. They even smiled, yes!

Interview: I saw that you just did 2/3 interviews before and you must say to yourself that I will ask you the same questions.
Ben: No Iím sure you have good questions obviously.
Interviewer: I can see it in your eyes. No, Iím not sureÖ But I love your music and your new album. First, you spend a lot of time in studio and I listened very carefully to your album, which has so many sounds in it. I canít imagine that just two people have created this huge universe.
Ben: I think that, a lot of time, when we play music, we donít know where the best moments come from. We can keep playing for hours to come to these good moments, it leads to this point where the music is making itself.
Interviewer: When you compose, how do you know that a song is done, that you donít have to change it? Because with your way of composing, it seems like you can always go further.
Andrew: We share a good intuition about songs and about music and we know what we should keep or not.
Interviewer: I know that you like Syd Barrett, but music made him crazyÖ Is it something that you are afraid of, because music has to be like that?
Ben: Yes, I think so.
Andrew: Itís my biggest fear to lose my mind, I donít want this.
Ben: I donít think that Syd Barrett was necessarily crazy. A part of him was, mostly people around him.
Interviewer: One of you have once been crazy because of pressure a few years ago or not really?
Andrew: I mean, not clinically crazy. It was in a trying period, to try to defend ourselves after we made our second album and to try to spend our energy convincing people that it was music that we were sincere about.
Interviewer: Whoís surfing to stay cool and to stay in connection with Mother Nature?
Andrew: Itís really important to me to be in the ocean, just the general idea of, you know, it will sounds very hippie but, in the ocean I surf waves of energy and so is music.
Interviewer: And you, you repair computers and do programing, thatís true?
Ben: Yeah, thatís my hobby.
Interviewer: When you donít work you repair computers?
Ben: Yeah it keeps me busy. I was worried to become stupid being on tour so I needed something that keeps me active.
Interviewer: Are you married?
Andrew: No.
Ben: No.
Interviewer: French girls are nice you know?
Andrew: My girlfriend is French.
Interviewer: Your girlfriend is French?
Andrew: Sheís back over there.
Interviewer: Oh I saw her, I know who she is! I wonít say anything. [---]
Interviewer: Just to finish before you go, what will you do before the show? You have your own room or you live together?
Ben: We are in the same. We read books.
Andrew: Lying on the floor.
Ben: Yeah, lying on the floor.
Interviewer: Itís not rockíníroll! Reading books and drinking orange juice. Is this really the truth? Things have changed; you get old.
Andrew: Yes, look at us, we get old.
Interviewer: Thank you very much.
Andrew: Thank you.

I like the recommend one song to a new MGMT listener question. I've always wondered what their answer would be.

MGMT interview for TheMusic.com.au


Don't exactly know how to embed a link, but had to share this interview.  Good news to hear that they're going to try to get into the studio in February!

Thanks for sharing  :) Wow, February.  The reasoning makes sense... trying out all the different time frames to record in.  It never gets old hearing how they appreciate fans sharing stories about what the songs and lyrics mean to them.

I really enjoyed that! I'm really glad Will's not in the back anymore, he's a freaking blast to watch drum.
