This thread is for collecting print/online articles & audio interviews; companion to the videos thread. 

***This post is (obviously) a work in progress.***
Big hugs and thank you! to all the MGMT fans (and sometimes indifferent non-fans) that are a part of creating it. :)

Special thanks to Gonia, of the MGMT Free Forum, + all the fans there for their awesomeness. :-*

There are interviews, reviews (good AND bad), only-very-slightly-related-to-the-band articles here, and yeah... a bit of a smorgusboard. Sorry. :-X
